Världens Band

Biography

Världens Band was first brought together in early autumn of 2012 by the Swedish Folk Act Kolonien as an experiment to create a new Big Band of folk music with people from different cultural and economic backgrounds – a group seemingly impossible to fit together and a board set for possible conflict with religious and political differences.

But with music as the language and common ground, they have formed into an explosive orchestra, that aims to challenge norms and prejudices. Världens Band wishes to become a necessary contribution to both the music scene and the societal debate, in times of growing discord and xenophobia.

Since the start they have conducted two highly acclaimed tours in Sweden, with their catchy mix of music from India, Zimbabwe, Sweden, England, Scotland and France. It will be followed with their first record release and a wide festival tour in Sweden, England and France during 2014.

Världens Band is an ensemble embodying the thesis that music can unite and create common grounds across borders.
