Finnish-Swedish folk music group Jepokryddona brings a performance of music in the Jacobstad traditions of Jeppo, Finland to New York. The music of Jepokryddona springs from the Swedish speaking regions of Jeppo in Nykarleby, Ostrobothnia, one of the few places in the world where the minuet and the polska remain part of a living tradition of playing and dancing.
Active since 1994 and led by Christine Julin-Häggman, Jepokryddona, with performances that have toured worldwide, this group of dedicated musicians delivers a young, fresh touch on the swing and ﬁre of old ﬁddlers.
