The Swedish trio BEATA BERMUDA plays both traditional and contemporary folk music. Self-composed as well as 100 year old music on violin, vocals and glockenspiel with features of indie-pop and singer/songwriter gives BEATA BERMUDA their unique voice in the Swedish folk music landscape. Since their start in 2012 the band has toured extensively in Sweden, Denmark and Germany. In 2014 the band released their debut album "Beata Bermuda" at the prestigious Euroradio Folk Festival that was broadcast throughout Europe. Their recordings and live concerts continually receive many enthusiastic reviews. Members Linnea Aall Campbell, Hanna Andersson and Samantha Ohlanders are all educated at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, Sweden.
"an exquisite musical potpourri; sometimes soulfully imploring, sometimes intimate and humble, sometimes wildly uninhibited, but mostly with an idyllic serenity that seems to have sprung from the quiet winter landscape of their homeland."
Neal Graham, General-Anzeiger / Germany
"unbounded energy and verve."
Steve Ono, Fresno Folklore Society / California, USA
"strong fiddles with developed vocal harmonies. I think I hear echoes of both American roots music as well as artist Laurie Anderson."
Ulf Gustafsson, Upsala Nya Tidning / Sweden
"profound lyrics, beautiful, headstrong and ethereal. Clearly gifted."
Peter Ahlbom, Spelmannen Magazine / Sweden
"The group uses their violins in a very exciting way that definitely gives a taste for both traditional folk music and its fusion with modern indie and singer/songwriter tradition."
Maria Dahlström, Hela Hälsingland / Sweden
