Kaja & Tetra is the result of two independent music groups that started working together in 2011 and have had Midvintervakar together since then. The members of Kaja & Tetra have a penchant for allowing different traditions to meet. Kaja based her new compositions on Eastern European folk music, but allowed the music to be influenced by the members' different musical experiences and personal expressions. Likewise, Tetra made a mix of different traditions in his performances, seasoned with percussion, poetry and dance. The folk music in Tetra has mainly Greek, Haitian, Nordic and Arabic origins. Nowadays, Kaja & Tetra are their own independent ensemble that performs the performance Midvintervaka together.
