Some projects and stuff

Charlize Merighi Band


The Swedish Hurdy Gurdy Trio

Three of Scandinavia’s foremost hurdy-gurdy players join their creative forces in a collaborative project dedicated to the creation of a new repertoire for the hurdy-gurdy.

Together with amplification, live-looping and effects and the amalgam of their musical roots; Swedish traditional music, classical and contemporary music, ancient music and jazz - they create a fusion of sound unlike any other as the hurdy-gurdy is a unique sound-machine. Within, a world of sound is created that one could never guess was ever possible with an instrument that has its origins in the middle-ages.
