Music is another way for Maria to explore human encounters and also emotions. Maria sings jazz and performs songs while letting the music and text portray various experiences of love and change. The songs are jazz vocal standards from 30s and more recent years, and some blues tunes are included as well.

Maria has chosen love and change as themes for her repertoire, as love has many faces and is essential for us. Many jazz songs are timeless expressions of the deepest feeling of connecting with someone. Think of the wonderful sense of wanting to be very close to someone or the feeling that this love is actually forever. Or the sense of surprise and joy to have found love. There is also love and warmth in grief after someone dear. Or how it feels to realize the missed opportunity of love. Many more faces of love can be described here, of course, and more of them will be performed in ”The love concert.”
