Gris & Harpaphonics on Roots and Shoots!

Griselda Sanderson & the Harpaphonics are a new ensemble performing traditional & original music with roots in Scotland, Sweden and West Africa, and featuring the Swedish Nyckelharpa. Gris (nyckelharpa) plus Sam Powerful Yeboah (percussion) and Louis Bingham (guitar, percussion) from Harpaphonics will be coming into the studio to play on rootsandshoots this Monday 26th January. They will talk too about their music and their new album Harpaphonics - which they are launching on our show! The music on the album has been described as an aromatic mix combining the strange and beautiful resonances of the Swedish nyckelharpa and fiddle with an array of percussive accompaniment. A donation from each album sale will go to Project Okurase, addressing the HIV/AIDS crisis in Sam's country, Ghana.

Listen in on Monday and email studio@phonic.fm to tell us how much you are enjoying the experience! In the meantime, watch a video and listen to the music of Gris & the Harpaphonic Ensemble here.

  1. Greetings-
    Great to hear about this. I'm putting a note up on the Project Okurase site under 'latest news'. Is it alright if I include the photo above and link to this, along with the station's site?
