Still working on that hot first release.



The duo Gretli & Heidi was from the start a part of  Variety Vauduvill, a traveling tent show in Sweden in the 1980s - and '90s . The duo made highly acclaimed musical scene numbers in a dream world inspired by Tyrol.

In an environment filled with cowbells, dirndl, lederhosen and edelweiss, they played at various everyday objects such as bikes (spokes, bicycle bells) and haberdashery (scissors, knitting needles and crochet hooks, thimbles, zippers).
2001 had Gretli & Heidi opportunity to realize their idea of music on glass instruments, and constructed a glass harp of odds recykled wineglasses. They have since continued to collect tinkling glassware, which is the basis for the songs they compose. The sounds of the water-filled bowls, dishes and bottles mixed with the sounds of their voices, accordion, piccolo and glockenspiel. All music is original compositions and improvisations of Gretli & Heidi.
Their music seeks to expand the borders of an acoustic, urban world music. They create their own music tradition, inspired by a European musical heritage that stretches between the Balkans and the Arctic.
They have given concerts at theaters, concert halls, circuses, variety shows and jazz clubs. They have performed with the Radio Symphony Orchestra on Swedish Television and at openings and inaugurations, most recently at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Theme Program Going Glocal at Swedish Embassy / House of Sweden in Washington.
In 2010 , they recorded the CD Gretli & Heidi in Atlantis studio at the record company Ragadang Records.
