Goran is of Croatian heritage, but has grown up in Sweden in a family of musicians and artists. He has been for many years, a key player at the very core in the Swedish music scene. A sought after session player, touring musician, arranger and producer. Goran has performed with José Gonzales, Stina Nordenstam, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Lester Bowie, The Soundrack of our Lives and many many others. He is a regular member of the bands Goran Kajfes Subtropic Arkestra, Oddjob, Nacka Forum and Magnus Carlson and the Moon Ray Quintet. He was given the honour of composing and performing the music for the opening ceremony of Stockholm’s Museum of Modern Art in 2006. He’s written music for several movies and produced a number of albums including Titiyo’s latest album Hidden.
Kajfes debut “Home” (2001), where a mulitude of influences was mixed into an appealing and spicy brew established him as being at the forefront of crossover visionary jazz. The sequel, “Headspin” (2005) won the Swedish grammy award for best jazz album for the very same reasons. The success of these two releases took Kajfes around the world performing with his own band. His latest album “X/Y” has been a huge success and been voted the jazz album of the year in The Independent.
