"CD Review Global Rhythm"

“If the band’s goal is to give new life to old legends, they’ve succeeded. Of course, it also helps that these four troubadours are fine musicians. Their sound is absolutely haunting. Svanevit performs the kind of music that either draws one in or leaves a listener satisfied after only a few tracks. It’s a nearly perfect choice for Nordic folk enthusiasts.”

Svanevit NTCD01 - 2004
Rikedom och gåvor - 2008



Immersed in tradition yet contemporary; energetic and tumbling yet sweet and delicate – the music of the Swedish folk group Svanevits assumes many different forms. The extraordinary instrumentation featuring harp, percussion, Swedish bagpipes, nyckelharpa, mandola, fiddle and voice gives the band their unique sound. Beautiful medieval ballads mix with merry schottisches, captivating traditional songs and of course the ubiquitous polska! Three of the musicians – Maria Larsson, Anna Rynefors and Erik Ask-Upmark – have been awarded the Zorn medal, and Anders Larsson completes the line-up with one of the most distinguished male voices in the Swedish tradition today. Together, the quartet makes contemporary folk music with spellbinding stories and great energy. Svanevit – spellbinding Swedish folk music!
