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.
