Richard Danielson - Vocals. A real deep down heavy blues-voice, bleeding harmonicaand acoustic guitar
 (that sometimes sounds very electric with the feedback from the monitors).
Clas Gustavsson - Acoustic guitar with wha-wha, and backing vocals.
 On stage the engineer often puts a microphone to his foot. He has got rhythm…
 On the records he also occasionally plays bas, percussion & drums.

 

It has been said about us that we seems to be a bit schizophrenic in our music because we use one part of the brain that has the blues-tradition, with lyrics in English, together with the other part that has the Swedish tradition, with connections to the Swedish “visa” with it’s poetry. Anyhow the name: BABA is African and Asian…

But we are not playing “world-music”, we just pick up the junk in our minds and let it go… And the blues is the main part in there for both of us after been playing it in many different bands for many years. The blues sure have a lot of babies all around the world and it have taken a lot of different shapes and one of them is ours. Sweden have got a quite big blues-scene these days with many qualified bands and artist, I guess we have to let it all out. Just to survive with all of this snow… ---Richard and Clas, babablues.se

Richard Danielson and Clas Gustavsson (then mainly a drummer) met in 1984 as members of a touring blues band called "Diving Duck". A little fed up with the cover-mentality of the ordinary blues band-concept they started to play acoustic on late hotel nights after the gigs to get the music out of their system. There they founded a form of blues rooted in the early pre-war blues, with no bas and drums, but with a modern rock attitude. In 1988 they started to play and make gigs under the name of Baba Blues duo and decided to make a tape to sell after the gigs.

They had both played in several band for many years being parts of the Swedish "progg-scene" going on in the seventies, with lyrics in Swedish and slightly psychedelic "make your own thing"- approach.

When they, in the early 90:s, started to write and record their own blues songs in Swedish and put them on the debut-album "Fishermen" the radio stations immediately started to played it. TV- shows invited them and they became favourites of the newspapers critics that put it on "the best of the year lists". They made two albums "Kompassernas man"(-93) and "Den rasande balansen" (-96) in Swedish with hits on the radios play-lists before they decided to try to communicate with the world outside of Sweden.

In 2000 their album "Excavations: Blues is a rainbow" knocked the critics who again put them on "the best of the year lists". This time the songs were in English, some of their own, some old blues stuff and unexpectedly a Motorhead song. All in very personal way with their very unique approach left. ---Alexandrr, hixboard.com

The Swedish duo of Baba Blues is famous for on stage sounding like a whole big band going on with the minimalistic settings of voice, harmonica and two acoustic guitars put into a PA-system.

No faking machines or synthesisers, just pure handmade music…

When they make records they use a little more of technique and instruments as they make them for a different audience and listening situation.

“Deep down in the mirror” was released in 2005, with expressive lyrics, experimental settings (kora, violin and brass arrangements) and together with heavy touring they recieved the Swedish Blues Award of Jefferson Bluesmagazine in 2006. ---babablues.se
