Description:The Trio is following up on their highly recommended and Danish Music Awarded CD "Habbadám - folkemusik fra Bornholm"(2007). The fiddler Ditte Fromseier grew up on the very unique and most eastern Danish island of Bornholm situated In the Baltic Sea. Therefore the music of Habbadám is based on the islands rich musical tradition and history. The islands music has strong links to the Scandinavian, English and Irish music. Habbadam combine this with their own compositions to create their very own unique musical expression.
