Susanne Lundeng & Nils-Olav Johansen

Duo Lundeng/Johansen play traditional music from north Norway, and Lundeng's own compositions.

Susanne Lundeng has, rooted in north Norwegian music tradition, developed herself into a distinctive fiddler, composer and musical free thinker. She is one of Norways most qualified folk musicians. Now she also sings her own lyrics, and thereby opens another side of her artistry.

Nils-Olav Johansen is a jazz guitarist and singer who gets the inspiration for his musical expression out of traditional music from all around the world. He is known for his brilliant iconic improvisations.

The duo's music moves from the most delicate, almost inaudible tones to the most expressive and driving string games. In her lyrics and melodies, Susanne Lundeng describes life's drama, in relation to both people and landscapes.
