Sunniva og Atle
Sunniva Brynnel – accordion and voice
Atle Kvia – mandolin
This Norwegian/Swedish duo explores the music of their respective home countries. Sunniva is curiously finding that the music of her native area, the West Coast of Sweden, has endless things in common with Norwegian folk. After all, she is born just a couple of hours away from the Norwegian border, with Oslo as the closest capital city to her hometown!
Atle Kvia and Sunniva Brynnel have both lived for an extended time in England – for music studies at conservatory level – which is how the third component of their musical expression enters the mix: the tonal language of Celtic music, bringing them together while they explore each others’ native countries musically and geographically. Mandolin and accordion has proven to be quite the musical trip, too!
