Synopsis

Amazon.com
In this band's long career they have been important catalysts in the Scandinavian folk revival movement but, until this album, they were close to unknown outside of Sweden. This collection brings all stages of the band's existence into sharp focus from their most recent experiments to their 1982 roots. Some of the best musicians the folk scene has had to offer are included: Mats Eden, master fiddler; Tina Johansson, innovative percussionist; Hållbus Totte Mattson on lutes and guitars. Rickard Åström electronics, Lena Willemark, vocalist; and Bill McChesney and Jonas Simonson helped create a reed sound that has become widely imitated. --Louis Gibson

"Groupa is a very relaxing CD to listen to. The music is serene and it's fun. I would say you should definitely buy this CD."
Excellent Groupa

"Scandinavian music is every bit as much fun as Celtic and British music. This instrumental Swedish ensemble plays tight, energetic arrangements of contemporary and traditional folk tunes. They've got swing and syncopation and synergy. Awesome stuff. The MP3 download of this compilation album seems unavailable right now - that may change. The individual album downloads are currently available, though. I've heard Månskratt is especially good. I have Utan Sans... excellent album! Groupa is a great start if you are searching for Nordic music. Haugaard & Høirup, Väsen, Slinkombas, Phønix, and Gjallarhorn are other excellent ensembles."
