The music of Jepokryddona springs from the Swedish speaking regions of Jeppo in Nykarleby, Ostrobothnia, Finland. In fact, Jeppo is one of the few places in the world where the minuet and the polska remain part of a living tradition of playing and dancing. Jeppo is a source of countless old-style melodies.
Jepokryddona play with a young, fresh touch – but with the same swing and fire as the old fiddlers. Tunes are always learnt by ear. All the arrangements on this recording have been made by Christine Julin-Häggman, the leader of the group.
