The Jazz Session #560: Sunna Gunnlaugs

Pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs was once the only professional female jazz musician in Iceland. In this interview, she talks about the work she’s done to change that fact; her recent recording and performing projects; life during the pandemic; and much more. (Note: Sunna was on The Jazz Session back in 2010. You can listen to that interview here.)
