Emilia Amper and Olle Linder

In her music, a deep knowledge and love for traditions meet an endless, open-minded exploration of the nyckelharpa’s possibilities. With her charisma, virtuosity and energy she moves with ease across stylistic boundaries and touches people in both small and big venues across the world.

Olle Linder  plays bass, drums, guitar, mandola and different types of percussion. His diversity of playing styles has led him to collaborate with many types of groups, among them Bebo Valdes, Ale Möller and the Swedish pop singer Robyn. His great fascination for groove has caused him to get absorbed by latin music and rhythms, and has been to Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina several times to study and feel the musical atmosphere there. Olle has also composed music for, and participated in, dance and theatre performances in Stockholm.
