Inspiration and rhythms from Eastern Europe. Klezmertrance with rock attitude!
TUMMEL is a 5-piece band based in Malmö, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark. Right from the start in 1997 they won the hearts of both folk and rock audiences, and has since attracted a growing number of fans across the world. Besides Sweden, they have also toured in Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Italy, Slovenia and Estonia. They have played live both in Swedish and Estonian Television and Danish National Radio on several occasions, not to mention local stations in Siberia, Texas, Turkey, Greece, Germany etc. etc. Tummel has played every kind of venue from small bars to big rock festival stages, and people seem to get a kick where ever they set their foot.
Starting out in 1997 with traditional music from Eastern Europe, Tummel has gone through a gradual developement, so that today litterally all of the band's material is own compositions, and the influences from other genres are more apparent. Although all band members are strong instrumentalists, what really makes the crowd go wild on a Tummel concert is their extraordinary capability as a live band. The Tumlers spare no effort to give the audience a once in a lifetime experience, leaving the audience gasping for breath with sweat flowing from their armpits. Besides normal concerts, Tummel often does school concerts and workshops.
