Since 1985, Dalakopa has been famous in Norway after the group won first prize at Titano Festivalen. In addition, the group won a contract with Heilo records. In 1986 that recording was nominated for a Spellemannpris (Norwegian Grammy) and won. This honor was followed by a substantial winning streak at old-time dance contests through the 1980s and 1990s.
Dalakopa’s music has appeal for dancers accustomed to lively, old-time tunes as well as folks who enjoy listening to – and watching – energetic, soulful, performances and personalities.
There are 9 musicians in the group: 3 fiddles, 2 accordions, bass, guitar and wooden flute/recorder. Dalakopa musicians all love sharing music with others. Dalakopa is an international group of musicians from 4 countries: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and the USA. Together they have forged a special sound, due to the countries from which band members come. Their traditional repertoire comes mostly from Røros and Østerdalen, Sweden, with originals from the group’s composers.
