Song from the album "Folkmusik på svenska" by Åsa Jinder. Presented along with images showing the different shapes and forms of the beautiful Swedish forests. I hope you enjoy.
A nyckelharpa (literally "key harp", plural nyckelharpor or sometimes keyed fiddle) is a traditional Swedish musical instrument. It is a string instrument or chordophone. Its keys are attached to tangents which, when a key is depressed, serve as frets to change the pitch of the string.
The nyckelharpa is similar in appearance to a fiddle or the bowed Byzantine lira. Structurally, it is more closely related to the hurdy gurdy, both having key actuated tangents used to change the pitch.

Dan Andersson died in room 11 at Hotel Hellman in Stockholm on September 16, 1920, where he had gone to look for a job at the newspaper Social-Demokraten. The hotel staff had used hydrogen cyanide against bedbugs and hadn't cleared the room as prescribed. At 3 pm Dan Andersson was found dead. At the same time, insurance inspector Elliott Eriksson from Bollnäs also died.
