Danish band Himmerland is one of the most travelled groups on Denmark’s roots and folk music scene. They regularly tour the world playing at festivals in Scotland, Europe, Canada, Russia, South America and Australia. Himmerland come from different regions of Denmark, Poland and Ghana.
They compose their own music, infusing it with various different cultural traditions and describe it as a melting pot of folk, world, roots and jazz with myriad other world influences.
Band leader Eskil Romme (soprano saxophone) is from Funen, but has lived in Himmerlands in Northern Jutland for most of his life – hence the band’s name.
The band mixes traditional Danish music with jazz and other related genres. On their many travels in Scandinavia and the UK they have developed their very own “North Sea blend” of sounds and styles.
