The other day, the Danish Embassy in Canberra wrote on its Facebook page that the 39-year-old Danish jazz singer Mette Juul "has taken the Australian audiences by storm." "ABC Jazz Radio has given Mette Juul a warm welcome to the southern hemisphere by playing her songs and dedicating a program, 'A Danish song' to her music," the embassy reported with excitement.
