Malin Nilsson & Helena Josefsson, magic and music (I): an exciting fusion

According to her own website, Helena Josefsson will take part in a Magic show with her friend Malin Nilsson in November 2009 and in Spring 2010.


Both Helena and Malin were interviewed by Yvonne Erlandsson in Skånskan.se. The cooperation started when Malin Nilsson was invited by Sandy Mouche at KB in Malmö some years ago in a gig of Helena Josefsson’s band. Helena “wanted someone who created a fabulous atmosphere and Malin fitted exactly”. Malin is used to music in her performances. Malin loves Helena’s music and says “it’s so cool that Helena could think so much in pictures”. “We both want to do something new, something bigger than ourselves. Art, that’s why you get up in the morning”, says Malin. According to Yvonne Erlandson, Helena began to study for becoming optician but gave up because she needed to be musician to feel alive.


As it is said in Malmö Lokaltidningen, Malin Nilsson is going to work in the United States (New York and Los Angeles) this winter. In Spring 2010, Malin and Helena will join again for some gigs together. You can follow Malin's stories in her blog.

The duo combines pop and magic and will premiere at Teater 23 in Malmö, 13 and 14 November, and will continue in March. The singer and actor Emil Jensen says to Efterarbetet.etc.se that it was an opportunity to see the best magician and the best singer together: "Bästa sångerskan och bästa trollkarlen på en och samma scen. Allt borde kunna hända. Och kommer nog att göra det."

And in spring we will make our very own show, with her magic tricks and my popmusic in an exciting fusion! It is so much fun and it is a dream coming true to me.... When we rehearse dwith the pianist Hans-Inge Magnusson I felt like we were a band.

Hej Helena!

I love the new single very much and it's wonderful to see you back on the music scene and the video is fabulous, I wonder was it filmed around Tylösand or somewhere just as beautiful! A tour next year will be fantastic please before September as from September 2010 I am banned from touring and following Gessle or you or anything Rox related or music related since I will be a university student and will be a student nurse dedicated to the NHS for three years and my holidays are FIXED until 2013 so I have to go on holiday when the university says I can, no concerts for three years, how will I survive!!!! If you can get Per to tour before September next year... I’d be extremely grateful! :)

Looking forward to the new album!

Hi Alison! Great to see that there is someone reading. I don't think Helena is going to be involved in Gessle's projects for a while. I wish she could release her second solo album soon.

This is what Malin Nilsson has written before the show:
"Nuså! Äntligen! Det är dags för en efterlängtad entré på en av Malmös friaste teaterscener! Under två mysiga kvällar bjuder jag på mina egna favoritnummer och presentera några av mina härligaste artistvänner i en spretig cabaretliknande show, med hjärtat på det rätta stället, och inget tjafs!! Redan nu kan jag locka med att den skönsjungande Helena Josefsson kommer! Tillsammans gör vi ett par trick ur vår kommande Off Off-Brodway Show. För den olidliga spänningens skull, säger vi inte mer just nu… WILLKOMMEN!"

Briefly: It is a "straggly cabaret-like show" with "the beautiful singer Helena Josefsson" "Together we make a couple of tricks from our upcoming Off Off Brodway Show. For the sake of unbearable tension, we can not say more right now ... WELCOME! "
