Akrobakkus

2006

The basic tracks was recorded by John Fomsgaard in Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen, a big and ambient studio perfect for the ambient acoustic sound we wanted. After one week of recording we continued in John’s studio at Vibevej. Here the epic parts by the gypsy cimbalon-virtuoso George Mihalache and cult-actor Zlatko Buric were made, as well as the horn quartet and some additional mandolins, violins and the choir parts with lyrics by the finnish poet Timo Haapaniemi – a dystopic multilinguistic delirium.

Akrobakkus was nominated for a Danish Music Award in the categories “Album of the year” and “Artist of the year – contemporary” and also reached the World Music Charts in 2006
