The Danish/Swedish trio Habbadam plays the music of Bornholm - a small, picturesque island situated in the Baltic Sea. Strong connections can be made to Scandinavian, Baltic and Celtic music. Their repertoire is drawn from the island's extensive archives of traditional folk music. Habbadam perform as an intense and flirty ensemble, between them creating impulsive and intuitive music.
The trio's music possesses as much rhythm and swing as it does sweetness and melancholy - a finely woven sound of past and present. Since Habbadam was founded in 2004 they have toured extensively in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Scotland, Italy and New Zealand.
In 2008 they won the coveted Danish Folk Music Award for their debut album 'Bornholmsk folkemusik'.
'With capable hands and voices, pristine production, and essential heart and soul, this exciting new trio brings the tunes and songs of the Danish Island of Bornholm to life. I've never been to Bornholm, but hearing Habbadam, I'm tempted to visit soon.' -Tim O'Brien
