Concert TONspur IV - SVÄNG

"When I play music, it is like a form of prayer. Thank you for this gift.” (Sting)
SVÄNG was formed in 2003 in the folk Department of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. What was intended as a 30-minute final recital turned out to be so much fun for the band members that soon they came to the decision they should bring more prominence to the mouth harmonica as a musical instrument. Their debut CD received international acclaim. This was followed by a performance at Womex (the largest world music trade fair) in 2007 in Seville, and ever since then Sväng has been a welcome guest at festivals, in concert halls (including the Elbphilharmonie) and on small stages all over the world, with a tour in November 2016 taking Sväng to China for 14 concerts.
On the one hand the 4 musicians are following their ancestors’ footsteps in the traditional style of their music (such as their melancholy Finnish tango, always in the minor), but on the other they are living in the present, in modern cities such as London, Paris, and Berlin, and being influenced by them, and integrating this into their musical traditions.
“Sväng is stylistically independent and simply unbeatable in their unusual sound metamorphoses. With their bass, chord, and 2 soprano harmonicas, they are redefining the European music scene, bringing swing to Finnish folk music, a totally new sound to South European folklore, and giving Slavonic and Russian melodies new radiance in their melancholy weight…, concert 08.11.2013)
