Nina was born in Saint Petersburg and moved to Stockholm in her teenage years. It was there that her interest in early music awoke which later served as the base in her early career as an orchestra and ensemble musician.
With her studies in Sweden, Denmark and Germany, Nina has specialized herself on historical woodwind instruments, baroque harp and later also Scandinavian folk music.
Today she is active as a multi instrumentalist and composer primarily in the folk music genre.Through her compositions on the harp she creates a contemplative and melancholic landscape that envelopes the listener and brings forth memories of a different time and place.
Johan Lång was born and raised in Uppsala, Sweden, and at the age of 16 he became fascinated by the traditional Swedish instrument called ”nyckelharpa” and the soundscapes it is able to produce.
As a ʼRiksspelmanʼ he is an acknowledged practician of traditional Swedish music and has earlier studied at the Royal Collage of Music in Stockholm.
Today heʼs active as both a musician and a teacher. In Eir, Johan uses the ethereal sound of the nyckelharpa to illustrate different ambiences, be it the wind caressing the top of a mountain or the frigidity of a winterʼs morning
