Description

The festival site Bältespännarparken is made possible in collaboration with Näringslivsgruppen Göteborg & Co.

Sallyswag are known for breaking barriers and crossing genres. Sallyswag offers heavy grooves and eager lyrics. A musical slap in the face as they describe their music. The group has roots in dancehall, R’n’B/hip hop, pop/jazz, afrobeat and Swedish folk music and is a unique act in music Sweden.

Sallyswag was started in 2013 by national fiddler Erika Risinger who decided to create her dream band. She looked for the coolest and best musicians she could find. The result was an eight-strong Sallyswag. They met up in Gothenburg and started writing music. After several weeks of jamming and writing, there was a fresh and unique repertoire that was ready to affect audiences.

Since then, Sallyswag has played around 100 acclaimed concerts across the country, on jazz stages such as Nefertiti and Fasching, folk music festivals and festivals such as Peace & Love, Öland Root and West Pride 2018 to name a few. They have recorded the EP, "Käftsmällens Mamma" which is described as "the resistance that makes you shudder with pleasure when we silence ugly mouths and together are stronger than the storm. Everywhere we are, the mothers of slaps in the face who want to have fun, play hide and seek and dance macarena while we overthrow the patriarchal order ”
This concert is presented by Kulturföreningen Bunkern and Bunkern bokar.
