Jarruta (Sväng)

The new harmonica quartet Sväng is a unique phenomenon. "Jarruta", their second release for Helsinki's Aito Records imprint finds the band further pushing the envelope of the often overlooked instrument.

On “Jarruta”, Sväng sets on a task to further develop their completely unique signature sound which relies heavily on the individual and combined virtuosity of the quartet. In fact, with Sväng it easy to forget that we’re dealing with a harmonica ensemle here. When the compositional skills and performance reach a certain level it is difficult to believe that the instrument being used is one of the most common and readily available ones known to man.
