One of the first Swedish bands to fuse jazz and rock (and occasionally African and Latin-American music as well) was Egba, led by trumpeter Ulf Adaker and saxophonist Ulf Andersson , two musicians with roots in the jazz of the 1960s. Several other musicians of that era also expanded their vocabulary to include the electronic sounds of the day, collaborating with younger musicians whose background was mainly in rock. One of the latter is pianist and keyboard player Harald Svensson, who has also been involved in other groups, most notably Entra. Tenor saxophonist Ove Johansson and keyboard player Susanna Lindeborg in the group Mwendo Dawa have combined acoustic instruments with electronic sounds since the 1970s. The first EGBA album was released in 1974.
