‘The earth so black beneath my feet, the heavens are my ceiling’

We met in 2010 at Framnäs Folkhögskola in Piteå and decided early that we wanted to do music together. Although it took a while for us to find the right moment, we are now happy to release a beautiful album together!

all prices includes shipping!! ---------------------------->

"I’m born in a small town in Norrbotten county, in the very north of Sweden, when I turned 18 I moved to Piteå to study traditional music at Framnäs Folkhögskola where I met Gabbi. A couple of years later we both studied traditional music at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. When I graduated I wanted to move back to Norrbotten, but before that, the two of us wanted to record an album -and here it is!" - Maria

We’re in the final stage of releasing our album Jorden Svart, and we’d be incredibly thankful if you would like to support us by pre-ordering the CD. If you decide to buy an album you’ll get a signed copy sent to your doorstep before anyone else! And don’t forget, it’s soon Christmas!

Thank you so much for your support, it truly means a lot.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform so every donation makes a difference! If we don't reach our goal of 10,000 SEK by the end of the 30-day period, you won't be charged and also no rewards will be sent out and the album won't be funded. BUT if we do make it to our goal, we will be able to share this piece of art with you. Thank you!
