Kaja & Tetra: Midvintervaka

Photo by Peter Lloyd


With saffron fragrant songs and cinnamon flavored tunes a vibrant Christmas brew is made of Caribbean, Scandinavian, English, Greek, Arabic and East European music influences and traditional tunes. 


With the show "Midvintervaka" canvases Kaja & Tetra up a sumptuous Christmas dinner for everyone. The seven musicians and singers offer a colorful Christmas show with dancing and music drawn from various folk traditions: Nordic, Greek, Arabic, Celtic, Roma, Macedonian, Italian and Caribbean folk music, klezmer and tango. It sounds ranging from Staffan Supervisor and Santa Lucia in Italian to the brand new midvintertango and Haitian comfortable swinging Christmas music. Known and less well-known, traditional and newly written, locally and internationally. 

Midvintervaka is created by the two swedish folk/world music groups Kaja and Tetra. The members are all professional musicians performing in a number of different groups and projects, such as New Tide Orquesta, Ale Möllen Band, Kultiration, Amanda and many other.
