To wrap up World Cafe's Sense Of Place visit to Stockholm, we talked with the charming Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit in Philadelphia just last week. Sisters Klara and Johanna Soderburg sat down to discuss their impression of Stockholm growing up right outside of it — including early busking excursions to the city to finance new hair color.

The duo was discovered when Fleet Foxes singer Robin Pecknold heard its cover of "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" on YouTube, and the Soderburgs tell a story about Pecknold unexpectedly inviting them on stage to sing the song at a Fleet Foxes concert. They lend their gorgeous sibling harmonies to a number of songs in this conversation.
