Kalabra - Kalabra (1997 Sweden) @320


The name Kalabra is a combination of the words Abrakadabra and Kalasbra (super!). It is the name of a group of musicians who conjure forth marvelous music – bursting with life, spicy hot, captivating and headstrong – a kind of folk music that is rooted in tradition but whose musical expression reflects our own times.
Kalabra concocts a musical brew from folk tradition, rock and jazz, mixing ingredients such as polskas, ballads, schottisches, and popular songs – everything imaginable. The brew also includes spontaneous improvisation, a zest for music-making and natural curiosity.
Gössa Anders, Jimi Hendrix, Ale Möller and many others have provided the inspiration. Or, as one of the members puts it: “We just do what folk musicians have always done: we play whatever we like!”
