ARLETTA PRZYNOGA: The founder of this little blog, a lover of good music and Denmark (of course). When she heard “Trouble Is” by Turboweekend for the first time, she was sold. The passion made her create a blog called Good because Danish, to spread the word about great Danish music. Basically, she’s just a girl with a passion.

SIMONE MITTERER: Having always had a great passion for whole Scandinavia and having travelled around Finland and Sweden a lot, she was sold to Denmark when she heard Turboweekend play on an unexpected gig in Stockholm in 2011. Ever since, she has been amazed by Danish culture, Danish “hygge” and not to forget by its fabulous music. Since then she goes back to Copenhagen whenever there is a chance.

MARIE OLEINIK:  Marie is a political journalist by day, music journalist by night. She fell in love with Danish music after Eurovision 2011 and A Friend in London’s “New Tomorrow”.

Marie enjoys daydreaming on Godsbanen’s slanted roof, listening to The Minds of 99, Carl Emil Petersen and Virgin Suicide.

KATHARINA HEGEMANN: Discovering her passion for the world of music in her early childhood while spending hours listening to records of her parents and filling her little notebook with her own lyrics, her life today is unimaginable without it. Studying in Freiburg in Germany she discovered the incredible variety of Danish music when a friend took her to a concert of The Rumour Said Fire. Four years later she found herself still listening to “The Balcony” and living in Copenhagen, exploring the Danish music scene.

IRINA COREACHINA: As a fan of everything German, Irina naturally got excited about a Danish band with a German city in their name. Since then Danish music has been an integral part of her playlist. After she moved to Denmark, its many concerts and venues helped her feel right at home. Oftentimes she can be found at Hotel Cecil, sipping their signature “Copenhagen” cocktail.
