2011 - Nya Fönster



The band started in 2009 with Arvid Kästel and Sofia Bergström wishing to write songs together. Happy about the result they decided to form a band and together with Rikspelman Erika RIsinger and drummer Carl-Johan Groth they formed Navarra. After their first gig at a small festival Midvinterton, which was a huge success, more songs were written and the material for their debut album formed. Their intense scenic presence, the originality of the material and sound together with a skilled performance quickly got them a place in the heart and the dancing feet of their audience. Notable gigs during 2011 is together with Väsen and Lena Willemark, the Gala for Folk- and world music and touring with the organisation Musik i Väst. They have also appeared on national radio on numerous occasions.

The music of navarra has many origins, with traditional nordic music as a primary source. Inspired by such different acts as Groupa, Esbjörn Svensson Trio and the Cardigans, the music is characterized by great breadth in both compositions and lyrics. It is both simple and complex, energetic and calming, traditional and utterly fresh, but always interesting and full of surprises.
