I have studied jazz and Swedish folk music with the soprano saxophone as my main instrument. During the years i have played in different constellations:

Don-qui 5

Hyperactive, acoustic impro-rock quintet based in Gothenburg.

"Don-Qui Five stretches the limits of improvisational music into new territory. The music has its roots in jazz and progressiv rock but is at the same time closely related to free improvisation and world music. With the deep seriousness and the hyperactive playfulness of a child - the hyperenergetic quintet kicks a hole in the modern jazz scene.
Don-Qui Five is the band that grabs a hold of you and that doesn't let go untill you fall in to extacy and for a short while forgets that there is a tomorrow."

  • Adrian Åsling Sellius – alto saxophone
  • Henrik Büller – baritone saxophone
  • Lea-Marie Sittler – tenor saxophone
  • Jonas Nilsson – double bass
  • Axel Larsson - drums


Jole Mari

The free jazz pop folk punk duo Jole Mari was active between 2010 and 2013 and played music written by both band members.

  • Josefin Runsteen – drums, electric organ, glockenspiel
  • Lea-Marie Sittler – tenor saxophon, soprano saxophone, glockenspiel

En dans på honung

The trio was active between 2013 and 2017 and played their own compositions, fetching ideas and inspiration from the life and work of bees. The music’s genre could be called chamber jazz.

  • Gustav Davidsson – trombone, violin
  • Johannes Aspman – trumpet
  • Lea-Marie Sittler – soprano saxophone

Björn Pettersson kvartett

The quartet was founded in autumn 2018. The music is inspired by psalms and the lyrics are basically about uncomfortable feelings. Petterson is responsible for both the compositions and the humorous lyrics in this project. I joined the project during the first years and the recording of the first record Grabowski.
