Drängarna are a techno-country fusion band from Sweden. They are much like the more famous Rednex (who brought us Cotton-Eye Joe), but instead of singing in English, they favour their native Swedish. They record with the label Jam Lab, which is a Swedish subsidiary of Virgin.

Taking folk and country classics, they molest them with a disco or techno beat, step-up the tempo and have also occasionally been known to rap.

For the best impression of their effects, you could try listening to "Du Kära Lille Snickerbo" from Emil in the original and Drängarna's versions.
