Scandinavian roots, world travellers


ODE is a band with a sound full of rhythmic influences from Sweden, West Africa, Brazil and the Middle East and focuses on groove.


ODE is a new band consisting of three glimmering stars in the Swedish folk music sky: Olle Linder (percussion, guitar, vocals), Dan Svensson (percussion, vocals, guitar) and Emilia Amper (nyckelharpa and vocals). Their chemistry, as people and musicians, is extraordinary and they build their repertoire solely on original, newly composed, material. The lyrics have a contemporary feel, and are inspired by things that concern us here and now, touching on subjects ranging from love and equality, to folk music’s current status. Their debut album was released in June 2013 and have been touring since then. ODE is now working on new material due to be released in 2016.


Members of the band:

Dan Svensson: percussion, guitar & vocals

Emilia Amper: nyckelharpa & vocals

Olle Linder: guitar, percussion & vocals
