Musician Kristofer Petterson – ”The fullfilment of my musical circle takes place in the meeting with dancers; without dance the music becomes incomplete. In collaboration with the countries best dance teachers I have spent a lot of time and energy in researching the communication between dance and music. My instrument is silvernyckelharpa and in 2016 I became world champion!”
