Dråm (Anna Rynefors Erik Ask Upmark)

“Dråm” means “drone” in Swedish and the drone is at the very heart of this duo’s music-making, using instruments such as the harp, Swedish bagpipe and Nyckelharpa to capture the essence of Swedish folk music. The musicians, Anna Rynefors & Erik Ask-Upmark, skilfully handle the Swedish bagpipe in an easy and obvious manner, seldom heard today.

At the centre is the interplay between the harp and the bagpipe – a combination of instruments famous from Celtic music but here with an unmistakable Norse flavour. In short, this CD conveys the ancient tradition of Swedish folk music, delving back in time to its medieval roots!

Anna Rynefors & Erik Ask-Upmark are both members in several critically acclaimed bands, e.g. folk music group Svanevit and medieval ensemble Falsobordone.
