In the pursuit of innermost expression, the unique qualities of viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa are combined. Northern Resonance is a meeting where the potential of the instruments and the boundaries of traditions are pushed to break new musical ground.
With the resonance strings as the common denominator, a soundscape is created that freely moves between subtile details and grand sounds. Northern Resonance consists of the three well-established musicians Anna Ekborg, Jerker Hans-Ers and Petrus Dillner. Their different backgrounds in folk music result in brilliant compositions that catches the listener’s full focus in a captivating way.
When the Viola d’amore meets the hardanger fiddle and the nyckelharpa, an incredible curiosity, a captivating tension and a dynamic atmosphere is created.
