The trio Habbadám was formed in 2004 and have their musical starting point in the music from the little picturesque island of Bornholm, situated in the Baltic Sea. On the island a large treasure of traditional tunes can be found, and the trio have searched through the many archives and museums to find their great repertoire of tunes. The music is sweet and melancholic as well as rhythmic and swingy. Strong connections can be made to both Scandinavian, Baltic and English music.
The name Habbadám is the name of a little pond by the farm Habrogård near Olsker on Bornholm. The trio finds that the name has nearly as much swing as the music.
