Garmarna

Garmarna har släppt sex album som gjort succé världen över och är flerfaldigt Grammis-nominerade samt även vunnit i kategorin ”Årets folkmusik”. De har toppat listor i USA, Frankrike och Sverige, blivit belönade med guldskiva i Sverige och en Impala Award i Europa och har turnerat världen över, samt prytt omslaget till amerikanska Billboard Magazine. Deras musik har gästats av bl.a. Maxida Märak, Thåström och Annika Norlin och under 2018 lyckades de med bedriften att få in över 300 000:- på en Kickstarter-kampanj. Allt går till nya albumet som släpps hösten 2019.

More than 25 years in the making, Garmarna is continuing to invent what music rooted in the Scandinavian tradition is about. After 15 years of silence the band’s sixth album – ”6” – was released early 2016, moving them further into previously unexplored territory. Not that they have backed away from excursions previously, as perhaps most obvious on ”Hildegard von Bingen” (2001), but ”6” focused more on the Garmarna’s own abilities – as well as several cooperations with other Swedish major artists (Maxida Märak, Thåström, Annika Norlin). The lineup hasn’t changed over the years, the core of the music is still the same and their persistence hasn’t only won them a Swedish Grammy, a cover on Billboard Magazine and taken them on countless tours over most parts of the world; it has proven a beloved recipe for anyone with a deep love of music, no matter what genre. Garmarna is without borders, inclusive and generous. Feel free to join. In 2018, they managed to get over €30 000 on a Kickstarter campaign. Everything will be invested into the new album, which will be released in the fall of 2019.
