Kaipa is a Swedish band from the Uppsala area, which moves in symphonic rock with influences from folk music. The band is mainly influenced by Yes.
The result is as colourful musically and lyrically as Kaipa devotees will expect from the band’s rich discography dating back to the debut opus released in 1975. Formed in 1973, KAIPA never shied away from experimentation, embracing fresh elements and sounds manifesting especially on the albums released in the 2000’s. ‘Children Of The Sounds‘ is no exception. It embodies a powerful, positive energy and artistic brilliance that is irresistible and true to the genre’s very essence.
"Vittjar" is Kaipa's 11th studio album and it continues the musical journey that explored new grounds with the highly acclaimed album ""In the wake of evolution"" 2010. The addition of the eminent guest-musicians Fredrik Lindqvist (recorders & whistles) and Elin Rubinsztein (violin) further underlines the folk influences in the music. Now available on vinyl in a new colour!
