Sunniva Brynnel from county Bohuslän and Andreas Jansson from county Västergötland form a sparkling duo performing folk music from their respective home areas in the South West of Sweden. Also in their repertoire are original tunes inspired by their musical heritage, composed on the couple’s travels in Sweden and the US.
Poetic Swedish bridal marches mix with fiery polskas in minor, good old-timey waltzes and harmonies with a more contemporary flavor.
Sunniva Brynnel tours and records internationally and has been touring the US extensively since 2016 as part of groups like folk sextet Night Tree, as well as as a solo performer. She performs in Sweden with groups like Blå Dager and Sunniva Brynnel & Patrik Wingård Duo. Sunniva has performed on Swedish national television and her original music has been frequently broadcast on Swedish national radio as well as on radiostations across the globe. She has released four albums as a leader, spanning folk, improvised music and jazz.
