This Norwegian instrumental ensemble comes from the same school as Vasen, Filarfolket and the Ale Moller/Lena Willemark ensembles: take the traditional roots of your native culture and attack them with energy, creativity and a bit of daring. Elisabeth Vatn (bagpipes and clarinet), Ingar Zach (percussion), Christian Haug (guitar), Erik Hegdal (saxophones), Steinar Raknes (bass) and Tone Snildal (fiddle) make just that kind of music, music that will both challenge and please the traditionalist, and surprise the avant-gardist. Traditional folk feelings abound, but be ready for raw jazz, funk, rock and some unexpected turns of phrase and rhythm throughout the generous 14 tracks on this remarkable recording.

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
