Invitation To Dig (2007) is the debut album of IUBAR from small town Gävle in the North of Sweden has created a musical hybrid of their own, sharing the heartbeats and spirit of experimental artists as well as seventies hard rock.
Iubar has created a unique combination of ethereal pop melodies embedded in a sound of traditional Swedish and Oriental folk tones, electrified with rock n’ roll. The band did their live debut at the Hayal Kahvesi Club in Istanbul late 2003, and this album Invitation II Dig carry influences from their musical meetings from that winter in Turkey.
Iubar was founded by guitarist Steven Kautzky Andersson and the expressive singer Victor Björklund. Steven Kautzky Andersson has previously released two solo albums under the name GIPSY POWER on major labels, and was ranked one of top ten guitar players in Japan. He has also studied the Arabic string instrument Tar under one of the great masters, Ali Shakouri from Iran.
