Swedish Institute Alexandria, is holding a Swedish folk music concert by Triakel band in cooperation with the Bibliotheca Alexandrina today, Tuesday 17 July 2018 in the framework of the international Summer Festival.
About Triakel Band:
Triakel consists of Emma Härdelin, vocals & fiddle, Kjell-Erik Eriksson, fiddle and Janne Strömstedt, harmonium. All three are well-established in the forefront of Swedish folk music.
The group's repertoire covers everything from old music hall numbers to hymns. Often the songs are rooted in the provinces of Jämtland and Hälsingland where the group's members grew up. The music is quiet but emotionally charged, and arrangements are built up around Emma's singing, which is the heart of the group's sound.
Yesterday, the Swedish Institute invited the Egyptian Folk group El-Warsha to share their experiences of Egyptian folk music with Triakel band.
