Bass & Flowers
Homebrew melodies and handcrafted texts based on stories of lives and dreams.
Two-voice harmonies, groovy double bass and singing violin are the main ingredients.
We played our first concert in december 2015 at Stallet - Folk & Världsmusik in Stockholm. Since then we've toured in Finland, Belgium and Denmark and played at different small festivals around Sweden.
We're happily up for more concerts at all kind of different locations. You're welcome to contact us!
