Mats Eden and Dan Svensson

Mats Eden is a brilliant fiddler with his roots in the Värmland tradition (Värmland is a province in midwest Sweden) and one of the most important musicians in the development of folk music in Sweden since the 1970s. He is a musician who challenges boundaries constantly. His artistry involves integration and meetings between different traditions, both between different folk music traditions and between folk music and art music as well as folk music and jazz. He´s also a teacher at the Academy of Music in Malmö.

Dan (multi percussionist) grew up with pop and rock music as a singer, but during his studies at the Academy of Music he was more and more attracted by folk and world music, and he soon became very much asked for in this genre. Today his very diversified activities range from projects in Nordic folk music like Alla Fagra, Yölariis and ODE via Arabic projects like Tarabband and a trio with oud-player Ali Awash, to his own compositions of poems by Swedish poet Karin Boye.
