Emilia Amper

World Champion of nyckelharpa charming audiences worldwide
Folk/World
Emilia Amper is one of Sweden's most successful folk musicians ever. She can look back on both a Swedish and American Grammy nomination, Norwegian Grammy equivalent Spellemansprisen, a NPU award from SKAP (Swedish Composers of Popular Music), winning the World championships of nyckelharpa and Artist of the Year at the Swedish Folk & World Music Awards. With her charisma, virtuosity and energy, she moves with ease across stylistic boundaries, and touches people in both small and big venues across the world.

During 2015, Emilia has collaborated with, among others, The Trondheim Soloists and Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (Norway), Swiss ensemble Flamencos en route, German Ballett am Rhein, and Swedish chamber orchestra Camerata Nordica. In addition to this, she has been performing with her own outfit, Emilia Amper Band, and star trio ODE featuring Olle Linder and Dan Svensson (who toured Canada and the US in February 2016), as well as various other folk music projects.

The fall of 2016 will see the release of the follow-up to Emilia's critically acclaimed and Swedish Grammy nominated debut album "Trollfågeln" (BIS 2012) - the new album ”Lux” (BIS 2016). Here, Emilia will flower as a composer, ensemble leader, instrumentalist and vocalist. She explores the possibilities of the nyckelharpa, and we will get to meet influences from all over the world; from folk music, rock, pop, and chamber music, in music for nyckelharpa, vocals, string ensemble and percussion.
