Acoustic Routes presents: Himmerland - New Roots Music from Denmark.

Himmerland is a group of five travelling musicians, each carrying very different life stories and traditions in their rucksacks. They come from Denmark, Poland and Ghana, in West Africa.
They take their name from the beautiful wide-skied northern part of Jutland called Himmerland, in Denmark, where they first met. They compose their own music and infuse it with all the different traditions that run in their blood.

They have taken their music to Europe, Russia, Canada, South America, and now, Australia and New Zealand.
