Polkett efter Dal-Jonke

  This Polkett efter Dal-Jonke is a light polka from the province of Jämtland.   

  It is often used as the music for the traditional partner dance known as “Polka och Bakmes från Kall”.  A “bakmes” is a turning step that goes counterclockwise instead of clockwise in old Swedish dances.  they are found mainly in the northern provinces of Sweden.
