Musically open and as wide as the Finnish countryside, as romantic as Sibelius and as ironic and melancholic as the films of Aki Kaurismäki: The charming gents of SVÄNG have set new standards for playing the harmonica in the past few years – both in respect of repertory and technique. With their programme of self-penned pieces which is as sophisticated as it is entertaining, the four Finns show to audiences and experts around the world that the small, often underestimated instrument has unlimited possibilities.
Three of the band members studied at the renowned Sibelius Academy, yet they are the exact opposite of academie. SVÄNG are always also full of weird Finnish humour.
