Susana Santos Silva is a trumpeter, improviser and composer from Porto, Portugal.
In the last years she has been considered by the international press as one of the
strongest emerging voices in contemporary jazz and improvised music.
With a singular approach/voice that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of
influences, from classical and contemporary music to jazz and textural sound art, she
is interested in stretching the boundaries of the instrument and in exploring new ways
of expression within music.
She leads her projects Impermanence and Life and Other Transient Storms (with Lotte
Anker, Sten Sandell, Jon Fält and Torbjörn Zetterberg), and co-leads duos with
Zetterberg (also in trio with Hampus Lindwall), Kaja Draksler, Jorge Queijo, Alexandra
Nilsson, and a quartet with Christine Wodrascka, Christian Meaas Svendsen and Håkon
