“Groupa has become identified with Swedish folk music and all the developments in its recent history, Groupa will challenge people’s preconceptions of Swedish music ... a band worth their weight in gold.”

(Rock’n reel)

»It's not a fusion so much as music that sounds to be coming from two traditions - Swedish folk and European jazz - simultaneously. This gives a feeling of complete spontaneity, with flautist Jonas Simonson and fiddler Mats Eden seeming to conjure literally weird and wonderful melodies out of thin air as Terje Isungset adds his inimitable percussive colours with bells, granite blocks, eerie vocalising and improbably virtuosic jew's harp. Isungset's brilliantly impressionistic feature summed up the performance in two words: sheer artistry - and it's not often you'll hear that said about drum solos.«
