The sisters Astrid Lang and Ingrid Lang founded the
duo Shockwave Riders in 2001.
The joining of the two multi-instrumentalists and
exceptional singers brought forth a very fruitful
cooperation and they turned more and more towards
a rather avant-garde kind of folk music.
The superb harmony singing, the delicate and refined
arrangements with the perfect blend of guitar and
keyboards created a world of sound sometimes powerful,
sometimes lyrical and elegiac. With their dinstinctive
symbiosis of folky songwriting and modern sound worlds
they aroused - so the Folkworld - abstract pictures
of wild beauty and noble elegance".
Subsequently they released 5 CDs which received excellent
reviews. Extensive airplay and hundreds of concerts
in Germany, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg
and Switzerland followed.
