Siri Karlsson is a Swedish duo that embodies the tales and mysticism of Scandinavia with contemporary sounds. If you could imagine the mountains sing and the woods speak, it would probably sound similar to the experimental musical universe of Siri Karlsson. With vocals, alto saxophone, key fiddles and synthezisers they create an unorthodox and highly personal hybrid of folk, drone, avantgarde rock and psychedelia. In cooperation with one of Sweden’s top producers, Jari Haapalainen, Siri Karlsson has revolutionized the conception of contemporary Swedish folk.

Siri Karlsson consists of Maria Arnqvist on saxophone, synthesizers and voice, and Cecilia Österholm on keyed fiddles and voice. Siri Karlsson performs as a duo and with band, depending on venue.
