”A sonic blast”
Sallyswag is a vibrant live act and powerful music collective. With flash solos, heavy grooves and a feminist message, the band represents a unique act, unparalleled on the music scene: nine musicians with roots in Dancehall, R & B/Hip-Hop, Pop/Jazz, Balkan and Oriental as well as Afro-beat and Swedish folk music.
During winter 2013, violin and fiddle player Erika Risinger started her dream band. She searched for the coolest and best musicians she could think of. The result was the nine-person-band Sallyswag, who premiered on the Swedish Folk And World Music awards/Umeå Opening in February 2014. Since the premiere, Sallyswag has played around 60 highly acclaimed gigs across the country.
“Everyone should check out Sallyswag and if they’re this good after a year, then they will be able to create magic in the future.” // Tilla Andersson, Music Stage
