Thailand-born Sirintip had a natural affinity for music from an early age. To nurture her musical endeavours and reconnect with her Swedish heritage, she moved with her mother to Sweden at the age of 11. Quickly learning classical piano and violin, she soon took up double bass and began to study jazz – a path that would eventually take her from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm to the prestigious Manhattan School of Music.
While working on her master’s degree, performing and competing in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, she signed to GroundUp (Snarky Puppy’s label) and began work on her first full-length album. Since then, she has collaborated with a variety of musicians, including ABBA’s Benny Andersson and acclaimed drummer Mark Guiliana (Donny McCaslin, David Bowie, Brad Meldau).
She has performed at the Polar Music Prize to honour jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter, performed for the King of Sweden at the Wallenberg 100th anniversary, honoured the king of Thailand at the National Theatre in Bangkok, and was twice selected to perform and compose a musical interpretations of Nobel Prize nominations at the Nobel Museum in Sweden.
With its subject matter stretching across three continents and cultures (Thailand, Sweden, and America), Sirintip’s remarkable debut album Tribus is a powerful, forward-looking album that touches on pop, R&B, electronic, and jazz.
