Pithy and earnestly, tenderly and honestly.

Americana, Swedish ballads and Folk Music with a twist,

spiced with the big questions in life,

and the petty reflections...




Kaj la koro dolora eksilentis por ĉiam …

(And the heart aches in silence for ever…)

(Julius Balbin 1917-2006)*



In Sweden people tend to talk in derogatory terms about lyrics with only ”Hjärta - Smärta” — meaning ”Heart - Pain”.

But what’s the issue of most songs if not heart aches?!


In esperanto** heart ache translates to Koro Doloro*** or — with a little good will — to

Kora Dolora which we thought sounded better.
