The "Riksspelman", violinist Jeanette Eriksson and the tango cellist Beata Söderberg enter into a new and playful collaboration exploring each other's musical grounds. When a "slängpolska" full of go meets the passionate Argentine tango the result is a charged fusion where the music constantly strikes out new and unexpected paths. We travel through the frosty northern winter landscape and the South American heat, from a tender reflection to a merry dance, and when the journey is over it doesn't matter whether the feet have stamped on the asphalt in Buenos Aires or on a dusty road on a spring day in southern Sweden.
Jeanette and Beata get inspiration from two different traditions. The strong tango rhythm together with the drive of "slängpolska" make the duo to tackle the music with a varying and enthusiastic playing.
