Susanna and the Magical Orchestra is a Norwegian duo consisting of Susanna Karolina Wallumrød (vocals) and Morten Qvenild (keyboards). Both hail from Kongsberg, a small Norwegian town most known for its free thinking jazz festival. Susanna comes from a musical family with brothers Christian known for his trio Close Erase, and Fredrik being the drummer in rock band Span. Morten was a member of Jaga Jazzist until he quit to concentrate on his work with Susanna. He has also worked with Nils Petter Molvær and Norwegian pop diva Bertine Zetlitz.
