If she goes without singing for five days, she becomes a bit cranky, the very beautiful Danish jazz singer & songwriter Malene Mortensen tells Signe Damkjaer in ScandAsia . Danes know the singer mostly because she won the Danish Eurovision song contest in 2002; among jazz fans she is also known for having worked with the likes of Nils Lan Doky, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and Alex Riel. Her father had played the trumpet, her mother was a drummer, and her boy friend is the pianist in her band. Perhaps she cannot save the world through her music, but if she succeeds that people feel good through her music, that's a good start.
