1994 - 1997 enteli
enteli was a swedish jazz-folk supergroup during the 90-ties with Bengt Berger, Jonas Knutsson, Ale Möller, Johan Söderqvist and Lena Willemark. We toured a lot, did two cd’s plus the music for a swedish broadcasted version of of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. It is 13 hours long and available on 13 cd’s.
We also did music for a movie, Granskogen i våra hjärtan (1994) with Gunilla Ambjörnsson which included concert footage of Enteli.
Enteli Live (Amigo, AMCD 738) was our third album.
Ale Möller (mandola, luta, bouzouki, trumpet, dragspel, flöjter, hackbräde, slagverk)

Johan Söderqvist (klaviatur)
Lena Willemark (sång, fiol, flöjt, slagverk)
This is what Andrew Cronshaw said about the album in Folk Roots issue 184,
”Very live album from the powerful Swedish jazz/traditional improvising band comprising Lena Willemark, Ale Möller, leading saxist Jonas Knutsson, with Bengt Berger on tabla and Johan Soderqvist keyboards and harmonium. People of immense experience of traditional musics, so we’re not talking rootless noodling – this is wild, gutty and multifaceted, drawing on joik, kulning, polska, Shakespeare, Enteli’s Lord of The Rings radio score and much more.”
