Ditt Ditt Darium
Fiddle and vocal music from the North Sea rim, by four innovative musicians on the vibrant Swedish folk scene.

Emma Reid • fiddle
Ebba Jacobsson • vocals
Johanna Bölja Hertzberg • vocals
Alicia Björnsdotter Abrams • fiddle and viola

Ditt Ditt Darium works with two sung and two bowed voices: singers Johanna Bölja Hertzberg and Ebba Jacobsson and fiddlers Emma Reid and Alicia Björnsdotter Abrams. The Swedish provinces of Hälsingland and Bohuslän, England’s Northumberland and Welsh Gower are all represented in the backgrounds of the members and the repertoire of the group. The four voices make for a stark contrast between the raw lure of a unison melody and a complex weave of four intertwining parts. Melodies are stories, words are rhythm.

Ditt Ditt Darium played together for the first time in 2003 and have since toured the US and Sweden and appeared on both American and Swedish radio and TV. In November 2007 they released their debut album, 'Ifrån främmande land'. The simple line-up has proved very versatile and the repertoire spans from polkas to drinking songs, from swinging to lyrical. For a long time Ditt Ditt Darium has had a particular love of songs connected to coasts and seas:

Music that travels. Music for travelling.
