Email a Friend
FatDog, a Scandinavian/English jazzfolk sextet
From

For this New Sounds, listen to new music from Scandinavia, including works from the Swedish-English-Norwegian group, FatDog (the three Swedes, two Norwegians and an Englishman), who draw from folk traditions of Scandinavia and Britain, and the exploration and experimentation in Nordic jazz. Hear both a Swedish polska dance, and a halling, a dance found in Norway and Sweden- from FatDog. Listen to Norwegian trio Building Instrument, jazz, folk, world music with electronics led by singer/sampler/zither player Mari Kvien Brunvoll along with music from the curious Norwegian trio 1982 who fall somewhere between chamber music and Nordic jazz.

Also, hear a traditional Swedish song from the California-based Moira Smiley & VOCO along with music by the Finnish trio Tunto. Then, listen to music from the ambient duo, Pjusk, who channel the stark beauty of the Norwegian landscape, like sitting quietly in an endless night, and more.
