R.I.P. Susi Hyldgaard!!
For many years Danish singer, songwriter, composer and pianist Susi Hyldgaard was represented by AsiaNetwork. It is with great sadness that I have to announce her passing in the morning of January 21, 2023. She had an incredible variety of musical ideas, there was never one CD, tour or concert that would have the same style and sometimes I didn´t know what to expect next. But she always tried new things, was not willing to follow any given path, was a feminist musician in her inner heart and somehow managed to easily combine her all female solidarity and friendship with her family and love to her daughters and beloved husband. She sang about her daily life like being a mother lost in housework as well as being a lover. I don´t know of anybody who did this with so much humour and serenity. Susi was a wonderful human being, a phantastic musician and it was such a pleasure to work with her. She finally lost the fight against cancer, but decided to spent as much time as possible with her family. Susi asked me in her last mail to thank all her fans for their ongoing support and love during all these years!!!
