Short presentation

I am a professor in ethnology. I have written a whole lot, on music, dance, ethnicity, multiculture, age, heritage, and islands. I have also produced several hundred radio broadcasts for the Swedish Broadcasting Coorporation, on music from around the world. I am also active as a musician, in the bands Orientexpressen, Gunnfjauns kapell, and as director of Gotlands Balalajkaorkester. In June 2013 I produced BelleSounds, the world’s largest concert.
