Music

Press


“She masters in a relaxed way the liltings peculiar syllables and special language and with her warm flexible voice she makes the lilt both exciting and varied. The rhythmically intricate turn that she has in the tunes show the quality she has as a master lilter.”

Gunder Wåhlberg - LIRA music magazine 2009-04-10


“Ulrika’s Swedish voice of universal seeking, responded with the voice as instrument, with the voice as carrier of the seeds of sound across the Nordic countries through the Highlands of Scotland.”

- Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin Professor at the Irish World Music Centre, University of Limerick


"Ulrika Gunnarsson's passionate singing style uses a clear voice, good intonation and she has a fantastic way of putting ornaments to the melody and of improvising in this style."

Ladis Müller
- Smålandsposten

Bio

Ulrika Gunnarsson comes from the southern part of Sweden called Småland. This is also the area, from which she has her musical repertoire. Ulrika has been playing, dancing and singing traditional music all her life. She is now working both as a musician and singing teacher as well as an archivist at the Centre for Swedish Folk Music and Jazz Research in Stockholm www.visarkiv.se and at the Swedish Radio as a program host for traditional music and World music www.sr.se/p2/folke. Ulrika Gunnarsson has studied traditional music at the Malmö Academy of Music and Norwegian and Irish traditional music at the Rauland Academy and at the Irish World Music Centre at the University of Limerick.

Ulrika Gunnarsson is a member of the well-known Swedish band Sågskära, with whom she has recorded three cds: Krook! (1997 Drone DROCD 010), Apelgrå (2000 Drone DROCD 023) and Orm (2006 Drone DROCD 043).

In April 2009 Ulrika released her first solo album Trall (2009 Giga GCD-80), the first cd released in Sweden with exclusively lilted material (which is the vocalisation of the melody usually played on instruments). There are both solo tracks and tracks together with two fantastic musicians - Esbjörn Hazelius (cittern, fiddle) and Anders Löfberg (double bass, cello, fiddle).

Ulrika Gunnarsson is also a singing and dance teacher. In 2006 she published a teaching material (book + cd) on traditional singing, Häxgnägg och pärlband (2006, 2007 Svenskt visarkiv ISBN 91 85374 44 X).
