Product information


Klockar comes from Orsa and spent the summers in a mountain pasture where her grandmother used to herding call. She had heard Limu limu lima many times growing up. Someone told Klockar that it was sung by Hanser Lina Göransson, who was seen in Orsa's musical life when Klockar was a teenager.

Göransson was Alfvén's main soloist in the Siljan choir and later became an opera singer at the Royal Opera and debuted in Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana/På Sicilien with Jussi Björling.

It is unclear where the melody comes from. Limu limu lima can be a folk song from Älvdalen, a herd song or a Maria song. There are several places called Lima both outside Leksand and in Western Dalecarlia.
