When Lisa Eriksson Långbacka, accordeon, and Hanna Wiskari Griffiths, soprano saxophone, met through the music in 2001 they found each other immediately. Ever since they have played together in a number of various bands and projects and have interpreted both traditonal and original Swedish folk music on their, for the genre, unusual instruments. As a duo Lisa & Hanna plays music that carries tracks of travels, both geographical and musical – from the small town Bingsjö in Sweden to Buenos Aires.
The duo is playing with harmonies and colours, melody playing and improvisations and invites the listener to follow in this journey. In the fall of 2010 they were touring, organised by Estrad Norr, in a show when they performed their original music live together with the movie The Soul of Water, by Kurt Skoog.
