PLAYFUL NORDIC FIDDLE POWER

— ABOUT —

JO EINAR JANSEN (NO) – FIDDLE, OCTAVE FIDDLE, VOCALS

JOHANNA-ADELE JÜSSI (EE) – FIDDLE, HIIU KANNEL

Rooted in Nordic tradition yet unafraid to branch out to embrace the new - Duo Jansen/Jüssi offer driving rhythmic dance music tempered by exquisite fiddle tones that seem to mirror the majesty of the Northern Lights.

 

Duo Jansen/Jüssi plays traditional tunes from Estonia and Norway, diving into the world of older dance music, exploring the line between the beautiful and the rough. Continuity and creativity are important key words to the duos approach to traditions, dance groove and playfulness go hand in hand. With rare intimacy in their music the duo invites the listener to be a part of their world.

 

"The fact that siblings who play together sound like they belong to one and the same body is not an unknown phenomenon, but there are also other synergies between people that might just bring the same sort of closeness to music. This seems to be the situation with Johanna-Adele Jüssi and Jo Einar Jansen. Originating from Estonia and Nord-Trøndelag, this duo elevates music to extraordinary levels with their exquisite arrangements and pure harmonies. These two are folk musicians of an eminent calibre, unfeigned and clearly able to visualise just how international traditional music essentially is. Let Johanna and Jo Einars’ music flow into your senses, and make some slow dance moves across your kitchen floor." Steinar Ofsdal
