Ulrika Bodén with friends
Ulrika’s ongoing project with music mainly from her home region in Ångermanland. Ulrika has learnt many of the songs directly from older tradition bearers.
The beautiful Ångermanland songs form the basis of Ulrika’s solo repertoire, a repertoire that is added to and renewed as new old songs are discovered.
As a continuation of her work with music from Ångermanland, Ulrika also sings psalms translated into the Junsele dialect by the author and poet Nicke Sjödin from Röån.
With friends are some of Ulrika’s favourite musicians, an acoustic setting that alternate with each other depending on the occasion and plays as a duo, trio or quartet.

The album Te berga blå – To the Blue Mountains is a tribute to the herding music and its tradition bearers. Songs and herding calls of the forests in the north. Live the repertoire is performed both by Ulrika solo and by a trio with Emma Ahlberg/Niklas Roswall and Daniel Ek/ Daniel Fredriksson.
