"Kraja sing a capella in four part arrangements that are interwoven to ethereal and heavenly beautiful carpets of sound, a kind of ”Real Group” of folk music ...”
- Winnie Gravlund


"Four girls from Umeå, 19-21 years old - in four part singing so beautiful that it hurts. On Kraja's debut album they collect folk music from Ångermanland, Västerbotten and Tornedalen as well as Småland, Norway and Estonia.”

- Nils Ågren


"Kraja is nordic sound in concentrated form... Kraja just stand there, a capella, and deliver four part singing with a perfection of form beyond comprehension. Four sharp, rippling voices without the least friction.”

- Mikael Strömberg

Bio

Kraja is Lisa Lestander, Linnea Nilsson, Frida Johansson and Eva Lestander, all from Umeå in the north of Sweden and was formed during the spring of 2002, for a gig at Umeå Folkmusicfestival.
We are singing swedish traditional folksongs, lovesongs, dansingtunes and hymns and also some own material, all in our own arrangements. Our sound is totally unique with the harmony of the vocals creating a new instrument togehter.
After our record debut with Vackert Väder 2005 (Drone Music) we have been fortuned to be touring all around Sweden, and also Germany, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Ukraine, Russia and Estonia. In june 2008 we released our second album "Under himmelens fäste" (Drone Music).
