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.
