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.

They have just composed and recorded the title song for a radioplay that will be released next year. Details are to be announced soon under news.

2018 they will be on tour with their new concert programme.
