Via Jan Johansson’s ingenious interpretations of folk music Groupa gained nourishment for new impulses in on-going conversation as musicians. Groupa searched backwards, to the old transcriptions, to the written music, and listened to recordings of long since departed role models within singing and playing. With thin watercolour notes they paint their own version of Swedish tunes and songs. They listen in-wards, sometimes subtly and sometimes with irrepressible energy. More often than not they do not know exactly what will happen, but they find the way forward together. - Groupa - Kind of Folk

Groupa have for many years developed their own unique sound. Now they take their music one step further and present traditional Swedish tunes in Groupa's own costume.

The recording session with the Kind of Folk project took place in Lydstudio Nesbyen, Hallingdal, Norway, 13-15 March 2016.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
