The Swedish nyckelharpa and traditional Norwegian hardanger fiddle sounds like northern mountains. The 5-stringed electric bass draws you back into the streets of Stockholm. The guitar-like cittern adds a somewhat Middle-Eastern twist and the uniquely combined set of drums and bells makes the whole thing sound global.
