PÅGÅ: the music

PÅGÅ is the musical manifestation of Pelle and Gottfrid Åhman's creative collaboration.
Their debut full-length "The Evil Year"has been released in November 2020 on Svart Records and they self-describe it with these words:
“Out of a great lust to encounter the unknown and to explore the boundless in us this record/work came about, in the hands of The High Spirit Rebel. We wish this may serve as great entertainment, a bad enemy, an instrument and a match.
Enter! Step in!”

4-Track Session recorded for the show The Hounds Of Pamir on HKCR live
A set dedicated to Selim Lemouchi - originally aired on March 5th, 2021. Featuring guest appearance by Uno Bruniusson.

True to their experimental and ever-evolving nature, PÅGÅ take many form and touch upon many genres and styles in their music: whereas their debut album, "The Evil Year", could be described as a strange creature of psychedelic / ambient blues, their current live set relies exclusively on tape loops and samples, shifting therefore towards a more ritual ambient sound (in a like-minded manner to Tommie Eriksson's Lapis Niger music, to mention an example very close to them, artistically and personally).

Here are, to give an idea of their current live set, some excerpts from their show in Berlin on December 8th, 2023 (clip courtesy of Ruhail Qaisar).
