Väsen take the traditional music of their native Sweden and blend it into a delicious mixture of distinctive rhythms, gorgeous melodies, and unstoppable grooves. Roger Tallroth (12-string guitar), Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa), and Mikeael Marin (viola), blend rock, jazz, traditional, and classical sounds in unexpected ways that are sure to delight.

 

The band's origins are deeply rooted in the forests and rich earth of the Swedish countryside, in the centuries-old tradition of the folk music of Uppland. It's a tradition spiced with consummate playing skills. But this is more than just a traditional sound.

 

There's a playfulness to their music, a joyousness, and exciting new arrangements of centuries-old tunes, and new originals inspired by the tradition. You always hear the inspiration and improvisation of the moment. And we can promise that you’ll never know what will happen next.
