The band started 2010 when violinist Anna Möller joined the brothers Arvid & Erik Rask and Mischa Grind, adding the final voice in Koloniens characteristic four-part vocals.
In their first year the band was invited to play abroad in Tanzania and Israel/Palestine, where they found inspiration and time to complete their sound, mixing folk music with pop and reggae grooves. Dynamic compositions that enters the twentieth century, but still stays true to the roots. In 2012, they released their debut album ”Clockwise”, followed by a wide tour throughout Sweden and a few concerts in Croatia and Cyprus.
- 2011 Winner of the ”Best Young Folk Act" Award.
