Folk Spot: Barani (DK)

Friday 26. august - 17:15 - Klubscenen

Barani is a brand new duo on the Danish folk scene, creating minimalist grooves, songs and melodies based on old dance rhythms. The rare combination of cello and accordion gives a fresh breath to the melodies and opens up a new dimension of Scandinavian folk. Barani gives you the drive and joy of playing folk music combined with colorful melodies in a beautiful soundscape. Folk music enthusiasts will know the two from bands such as Basco, Vesselil, Habadekuk and Grønt Lys.

An export drive for seven Scandinavian bands and soloists starts on 26 and 27 August during this year’s Tønder Festival. Since 2012, Folk Spot Danmark has presented Danish folk/roots bands aiming for a wider audience, both nationally but in particular internationally. The drive is organised jointly by SPOT Festival and Tønder Festival, the ambition being to give a lift to Danish folk/roots-music at home and abroad. The SPOT Festival has years of experience exporting Danish music, while Tønder Festival’s expertise lies in the folk and roots genre. Once again this year, eight Nordic folk/roots groups have been chosen by the international jury.
