Handgjort was formed 1970 when a few musicians, (with Greg Fitzpatrick, an American Vietnam deserter in the front), that all had been to India at different times , met back here in Sweden. They had all been inspired by the music they heard and learned in India. 1970 Silence released their album (SRS 4602) at the same time as the more well known “Lord of the Rings” with and by Bo Hansson. Handgjort’s album more or less vanished in the hype that was created around Bo’s record. Handgjort only exsisted for a year and made their last performance at the Gärdetfest in 1971 with about 20 musicians at stage, among them Don Cherry, Mikael Ramel and several members of Kebnekajse.
The LP and CD is a cooperation between Silence and Psykofon.
