Here's a folk group with a neat-and-tidy sound, and an unbearably cool name: Ditt Ditt Darium. The Sweden-based band consists of two fiddlers and two singers who specialize in mostly seafaring songs. Or, one is informed they are mostly seafaring songs; they are also mostly in Swedish, but the musical blend of voices and fiddles is mesmerizing enough that you don't necessarily need the words. In fact, they don't always need words themselves--have a look at the MySpace Page and listen to "Windy Gyle"--some mighty nice instrumental use of the voice there! Shorter clips of all the songs on their CD can be found at CD Baby.
