Listen free to Sväng – Jarruta (Haidukka, Tango De La Abuelita and more). 2008 Sväng took the world music scene by storm with their celebrated Womex showcase in 2007, and now they’re at full flight with Jarruta, their second album to date. East meets West in Sväng Universe, where harmonica is king in more ways than the rest of us could even imagine. Their album title translates as Hit the Brakes, a statement which clearly bears very little resemblance to Sväng’s current career phase. It's probably safe to say they're the world's leading.
On Jarruta, Sväng sets on a task to further develop their completely unique signature sound which relies heavily on the individual and combined virtuosity of the quartet. In fact, with Sväng it easy to forget that we’re dealing with a harmonica ensemle here. Eero TURKKA : chromatic and diatonic harmonicas. Eero GRUNDSTRÖM : chromatic and diatonic harmonicas.
Sväng are a Finnish harmonica quartet formed by Eero Grundström. Between them, the four virtuosos play chromatic and diatonic harmonicas, chord harmonica and bass harmonica, which gives the band a rich ensemble timbre. They can be surprisingly rhythmic, too - especially on the more Gypsy-influenced numbers, and their adaptation of Silia Waltz by Viljami Niittykoski.
