More info:
Anna Elwing – singer and fiddleplayer, maybe most known in Sweden for the wellrecieved album “Alwa” from 2002 with the band Alwa. In Germany Anna is more familiar as one of five in the scanian folkmusicgroup Plommon, that toured regularly in Europe for many years. Lately Anna found a great interest in mantrachanting and singing from the kundaliniyoga tradition. The force behind her singing is to expand and communicate on all levels.

Dan Svensson is a multi instrumentalist who´s main focus is on percussion and vocals. He takes part in many different bands like ODE, Alla Fagra and Tarabband, and he is always open for new experiences through music.
"I believe there is a style of music to each sentiment, and the other way around, sentiment to music. And I can easily spend my waking hours exploring mental and musical moods by playing different genres and different instruments in different constellations. My making music isn’t connected to a specific instrument, anything is an instrument if need be."

Jens Ulvsand - bouzouki and guitarplayer and singer who has been on the Scandinavian folk music scene since the mid 90's. Jens has played in bands such as Avada Trio Mio, Willie Mbuende band Færd etc. and, alongside touring (Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.) have recorded some twenty CDs of folk / world genre. Jens also work a lot with folk music education (Malmö Academy of Music, Odense Music Conservatory, Skurups folkhögskola), workshops and courses and the core of this is always the groove.
"Wish it was me that said, 'It dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing'."

Growing up next to a lake, the singing ice during the winter reminds me of the great forces of nature, I can not control. Just like the music. But I try to be a part of it."Per Knagg plays the acoustic sixstringed bass, acoustic bowed bass, fretless bass, and sings in Yölariis. He is also a member of the Swedish folk band Alla Fagra.

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.
