Folk & World music, percussion, sound baths

Tina Quartey is a percussion pioneer with many years in the Swedish folk and world music scene. She started her percussion journey in Salvador, Bahia Brazil at the age of 20, where she learned the berimbau and other instruments, and then continued witht Afro Cuban ritual drumming such as shekeré, conga drums and batá. Out of all this her unique artistic expression has emerged, intertwining drum traditions with Scandinavian folk music. In recent years she has also been exploring music as vibration and frequency, doing sound art, meditative concerts and sound baths.
