Famous New York musician dies in scuba diving accident

June 18, 2008 ( - New York City)

Rochester, New York ( — This is the second time in three years that a well-known musician has died in an accident. The famous musician was to perform a concert at the festival of Ottawa jazz the same day when the accident took place. Popular composer and pianist from Sweden, Esbjorn Svensson, who was an expert in the field of infusing a mixture of pop and jazz, drowned in an accident while scuba diving.

Svensson was a great name in the field of internal jazz and had won critical appreciation and success in Europe. His albums included Tuesday Wonderland and Viaticum. Svensson, 44, along with his trio, was booked with the Library & Archives Canada to play at the concert. However, after the tragic scuba diving accident, the festival is giving back the money for the show or offering another ticket for some other show.

The musician died on Saturday while he was diving on an island in close proximity of Stockholm. The local police are investigating in the issue but the reports show that the composer lost his conscious state after he was hit on his head beneath the water.

In 2006, the same Ottawa festival was compelled to call off the show as the pianist Hilton Ruiz was found injured on the streets of New Orleans and he later died due to severe head injuries. Initially, the reports showed that the pianist was attacked but later it came out to be that he fell down and hit a curb.

The group was supposed to be engaged in various projects along with the local musicians to perform different concerts but after the accident, it is sure that the collaborative projects and groups will face heavy losses.
