Awilas is a duo that was formed in 2012 as a project to experiment with sound and develope a space for free improvisation in a new folk setting, dedicated to musical impulses and creativity without limitations. Awilas music is characterized by playfulness, strong presence and dense interplay; an intimate, poetic and exploratory landscape with accordion and voices tells about the hardships and heartfelt sides of human life. In October 2016 Awilas released their debut album, which has been played in P2 Världen and Klingan in Swedish national radio, received a great review in the magazine LIRA and has been described as one of the most interesting and beautiful swedish records this year. In february 2017 Awilas was announced nominated for Newcomer of the Year at Folk- och Världsmusikgalan in Sweden.
