Sväng Harmonica Quartet to release a new album and tour Europe

Sväng Harmonica Quartet returns on their fifth album, Karja-La, which will be released by German label Galileo Music Communication. According to the group, the new album is more darker and personal in tone, yet it still maintains the rhythmical basis on which the group has built their sound on. 

This weekend the group will perform at Babel Med Music in Marseille, France. Sväng will be the first Finnish artist ever to play at the event. Babel Med Music is the largest and most important world music festival in France.  

Sväng, which has been described as ”the harmonica equivalent of the Kronos Quartet” by Songlines Magazine, will play an album release show in Helsinki in May and after that play shows in Denmark, followed by an album release tour in Germany and Austria.
