MUSICANS Daniel Pettersson: Nyckelharpa Daniel Fredriksson: Mandola
Daniel Pettersson and Daniel Fredriksson seek new forms of acoustic expression. Using mandola and various nyckelharpas they explore both the local Swedish folk music tradition of Västerbotten and an inner, personal landscape. “Virek” is their second album, a sequel to their first album “Brand” from 2002. The music is varied, playful and full of ideas and influences from rock, jazz and art music. Most of the tunes are composed by Pettersson and Fredriksson, however, the imaginative arrangements sometimes make it hard to hear which tunes are traditional and which are not.
