Born out of a desire to break down musical borders and rebel against all the sentimental Swedish polskas in the world, Trio Svin came into existence in 2011 at the renowned Skurups Folkhögskola in Sweden. The ultimate goal of the band was to prove that there is no musical idea bad enough, no tune too fast, no mashup too weird.
Keen on expanding the term “tradition” they joined forces in their desire to make dirty, gritty folk music with attitude to boot. The result became an infernal collision of heavy grooves, breakneck speeds and unrestrained energy.
Thanks to their debut album "Ornernes Magt" (2014), Trio Svin was nominated in the category “Talent of the Year" at the Danish Music Awards Folk in 2015.
