Composers, writers, musicians and creators in love with music, poetry and Scandinavian folklore. (And well, tech and fantasy geeks too.)
Making room for nature remind us of everything that’s beautiful in the world — let us show you.
Both of us were born and raised in the Swedish countryside, and this is where we returned to as adults to re-root. We’ve always loved music, myths and stories — and we started over twenty years ago in the kitchen, poor students with close to zero in budget. That’s where we recorded our first album together, and that was just the amazing beginning of a long adventure. One that would take us to India and back, concerts, over fifty released songs and six books, the Scandinavian nature and the dream of living a meaningful and fulfilling life.
And it just keeps getting better and better.
We take you places
Music, nature, books, folklore – yep, but here’s the thing, the road to a finished product is a winding, fascinating one, filled with adventure. We want to be a part of it, and we want you to come along too.
So, when we head outdoors to speak in video – with us, costumes, amazing nature and gear – you get to come too. Enjoy the scenery, enjoy the peacefullness, let creativity spark in you too. We film most of our material by ourselves, be it with phones, handheld or drone. Or even microscope sometimes.
Follow us on facebook, youtube – or why not get the weekly transcendental emails? (You can sign up >>here<<, just scroll to the bottom and enter your email address.)
Video expressions, dance art, animalism, nature and seasons, these special moments that never happen again, like that spring when I found the black eye of the forest pond on a rainy day with such vibrant green – the location for the art video to “I’m still wondering”.
It’s so easy to take moments for granted, but few of them repeat themselves.
Sätra brunn, a breath of history, old memories and music
For hundreds of years the freshwater springs in Sätra brunn have been important to the surrounding villages, or travellers passing by. The water here is filled with minerals, among them iron which colours everything yellow… Back in the day it was a tradition to every year, after the long winter, clean the spring and dress it with green, such as birch twigs and branches, perhaps made an offering to the water nymph, sang and danced, and of course drank from the health-bringing water. The year 1700 the doctor Samuel Skragge discovered Sätra brunn, and after trying it for himself he […]
We discover with music (discography)
When words are not enough, music speaks louder, sweeps you away, embraces you – or make you dance.
Progressive rock, ambient, avant-garde, and sometimes we squeeze in a meditation or an acoustic tune.
Tell me more about Werifesteria
So, we keep talking about Werifesteria, but what is Werifesteria? Werifesteria means to head into the forest looking for adventure, and we love this word because this is just what we do, where we’re taking you. Let the forest speak, reveal its stories, perhaps entice your own. It’s a journey of healing, understanding, patience and wonder. At times I can’t resist calling it magic, even if it’s really there in front of my eyes all the time. But, it takes time to change one’s perspective. Werifesteria is an ongoing art project from Enchanted Duo – and you’re part of this too. The paths and the roots are something we explore together. We in us and you in you. Art is a process in each of us, and art takes time. Healing takes time. The music – the soundscape that embraces you Werifesteria began with the songs. A full-length album – […]
We travel with stories (bibliography)
To travel with words. To discover new worlds, or new aspects of the self. To relax, to see little miracles that you didn’t before.
Well, stories have powers like that.
A story is a process. Both in writing and in reading.
And yes, Anneli is Enchanted Duo’s author.
