Balladin is a Swiss female trio which plays experimental folk from many cultural areas. By combining voices, flute, accordion and doublebass they create their own folk style. Balladin performs in various places such as theatre stages, alternative festivals and cosy cafés. Besides the release tour of their new album “You know what I mean?” they do concert-performances involving scenic components. Their latest program “Restless women” is dedicated to female musicians in folk music. Their song played at DiscovrTV tells about a Rembetiko singer who decides to do whatever she likes to. The song ends up in Swiss german words, an authentic statement out of the three musicians lives. // Im improvisativen Zusammenspiel erarbeitet das Trio Balladin eigenwillige Arrangements. Ein verspielter, experimenteller Umgang mit dem Folk steht im Zentrum. Die jungen Musikerinnen heizen mit Flöten-Beatboxsounds ein, die Klangpalette des russischen Akkordeons geht unter die Haut und den Kontrabass erlebt man in atemberaubenden, von tief bis hoch führenden Lines. Ihren mehrstimmigen Satz singt das Trio auch mal accapella.
