Inspired by the traditional dance music from their ancestors, mixed with the classical chamber music tradition and several modern symphonic elements, achieved with a blend of the cittern, the violin and the piano. All of the music is freshly composed and arranged by Elmøe & Hoffmann, and the roots of the band members musicianship can be heard throughout the repertoire, whether it be the Swedish polska, Norwegian heavy metal (!), or Bach.
In 2015 Elmøe & Hoffmann started as a duo as a part of the young, growing Danish folk music scene. Emma Elmøe and Villads Hoffmann knew each other from the neighborhoods of Vanløse, Copenhagen, and shared a friendship even before they discovered their musical bond. Together they released a digital EP, and won the “new talent” prize at the DMAFolkDanish Music Awards 2015.
