A couple of years ago I found this clip on YouTube, with the title “Amazing Talent From Punjab”. In the clip you see a guy strolling across an Indian country road. He’s singing, improvising it seems, totally in rythm with all or nothing at all, and he just shines like a sun, with his relaxed attitude and white robe.
I don’t know why this video gets to me like that, maybe it is because I generally don’t feel relaxed enough to burst out singing while crossing my streets here in Stockholm. I think I want to become more like this amazing talent from Punjab. Not there yet, really, but every time I play this video my shoulders drop a cm or two.
And – long story short – we made a song together with the clip! We call it “Laddi Tells The Truth” and it is a first taste of our new album called “Searching For Amazing Talent From Punjab” that will be out in October. In January we’re heading to Punjab to try to find mr Singh. Wish us luck.
Here’s the video. We don’t have a big budget, so it’s not moving very fast. But if you have a big screen or small eyes you will see the amazing talent from Punjab inside the TV.
A live version of “Laddi Tells The Truth” performed in Drammen, Norway, 2015.

We love Japan! This is from a performance in a Buddhist temple in Tokyo in 2012. The guy playing the banjo calls himself Banjo Nick. Furusato is Japanese for “Home Sweet Home”.
Us together with a Japanese koto class in Malmö, Sweden some years ago.
From the preproduction of our movie Vocals. Something went wrong in the middle of the song, but we like it anyway.
In 2014 we were invited to work a week with a modern dance company in Havana. An amazing experience in so many ways. This is a mini documentary from that project.
