NYSCH was released as our fourth studio album. It came about after some very active years filled with musical collaborations, tours and festival - performances in many places far outside the borders of our native Sweden. The material on Nysch is to a large extent a result of these adventures. The title is short for: “Den nya schottisen” the new schottis (a beloved style of swedish folkmusic and dancing!)
Bazar Blå have a habbit of using remotely located cottages as studios but Nysch was recorded in a fantastic outhouse near Stockholm. A car full of instruments and recording equipment, three inspired musicians and two intense recording sessions was all it took. The result is new folkmusic – Transglobal Tripfolk - composed, performed, recorded and produced by Johan Hedin, Björn Meyer and Fredrik Gille.

Bazar Blå - Liner notes:
"Our urge to evolve, as musicians and as a group, makes us open for any ideas that promote new ways of expressing ourselves musically. It is not always a conscious search – very often something simple and unexpected like a few nice sounding notes, a strange drum or a new way to use the bow can trigger the imagination. The sound of a minaret-singer in Teheran, elevator-music in a Stockholm hotel, a squeaky radio in a taxi in Bombay or serious studies in playing techniques or cultural traditions, all in their own way, add to our musical evolution. Just as inspiration can come at an airport when you realize your luggage has gone missing or as dawn breaks at the fiddlers meeting in Bingsjö, it can turn up on the living room couch.
It is much like ants constructing their hill. You happen to pass by a straw, you like it and bring it home to see where – and how – it fits.
The music of Bazar Blå is most of all a result of the fact that we truly enjoy playing together. Even though our Swedish roots are evident, it is the specific blend of musical personalities that gives the repertoire its unmistakeable character.

We create our music without considerations about any specific genre but with an urge to invent our own paths through the musical territories that inspire us. The music itself, rather than stylistic conventions, tells us how to play it and the expression we want to give each tune becomes our guide to choosing instrumentation and playing techniques.

There is no generally accepted style describing our music so we call it Transglobal Tripfolk. Music inspired by folk-traditions from all over the world with the ambition to invite you as a listener on a trip through time and space.” - Bazar Blå
