The trio Habbadám plays music from the little picturesque island of Bornholm, situated in the Baltic Sea. On the island a large treasure of traditional tunes can be found, and the trio have searched through the many archives and museums to find their great repertoire of tunes. The music is sweet and melancholic as well as rhythmic and swingy. Strong connections can be made to both Scandinavian, Baltic and English music.
The name Habbadám is the name of a little pond by the farm Habrogĺrd near Olsker on Bornholm. The trio finds that the name has nearly as much swing as the music" Habbadám performs in an intense and flirting ensemble and creates the music impulsively between them. The sound they create together is a unique blend of past and present which brings an intense experience to the listener.
Since Habbadám was founded in 2004 they’ve been touring in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Scotland, Italy and New Zealand.
In December 2006 Habbadám released their debut album that can be ordered from www.cdon.com
