About JordJord is a music group from Tornedalen(Sweden) that creates its own musical world in which stunning vocal harmonies meet influences from different parts of the globe.
Their recording debut, Väylän virrassa, was released in 2002 and followed by a tour of Sweden arranged by Svenska Rikskonserter. The second album Mailmale came in 2005. The third album, nice matka, was released in connection with the group’s 10th anniversary 2011. Jord’s watchwords are vocal harmony, the language and the melodies of Tornedalen. They recorded the new album together with music producer Ollie Olson, who has sensitively linked a new sound landscape to the music.
The group comprises Susanne Rantatalo - vocals, percussion, Jan Johansson - vocals, accordion, Johanna Lindgren - vocals, flute, percussion, Erling Fredriksson - vocals, double bass.
Gun Olofsson was a member of the group until 2011. Johanna Lindgren became a new member 2012.
