Sirintip: “Carbon Cool” Climate-Change Concert
On the Grounds

The result is danceable rhythms and melodies derived from Thai, Swedish and American Musical traditions. Most recently, Sirintip has focused on producing a collection of music that gives individual attention to different facets of climate change—carbon emissions, microplastics deforestation, among others—seeking to inspire audiences with a lasting conviction that climate challenges are solvable on both micro and macro levels. At Wave Hill, she will premiere songs from upcoming album.

Sirintip has performed globally with Snarky Puppy, Mark Guiliana (David Bowie) and Benny Andersson (ABBA). She has opened for Wayne Shorter at Polar Music Prize and competed as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Competition. As a sought-after voice and topliner in the studio, Sirintip can be heard on over 30 officially released recordings and is an Ableton, TC Helicon and Earthquaker Devices artist. As a composer, Sirintip has been asked twice to compose musical interpretations of Nobel Prize nominations at the Nobel Museum in Sweden, and composed a 105-minute-long film score for Arthur Conan Doyle's “Lost World”, which recently premiered “On Demand” and at Alamo Drafthouse Movie Theatres. She also founded a series for the Stockholm Jazz Festival called “Contemporary Artists On Stage,” bringing up-and-coming Swedish artists to the international scene. During the COVID-19 pandemic she co-founded “Live from Our Living Rooms”—described by Rolling Stone as the first jazz festival of the quarantine era. Funds raised provided 100 relief grants and paid performance and education opportunities to nearly 160 artists in a time of need.
