Piatruba begins in 2012. In Gärdebyn, a place in Dalecarlia known for its rich music tradition, Oskar's (paternal) grandmother grew up with her father Hans, his brother Olle Börjes and their music tradition. They were two highly respected fiddlers that represents an ancient tradition. The music has been passed on for generations and goes back as far as to the 18th century. Oskar Stenmark, the 10th generation to play this music formed Piatruba to bring back the melodies back to life.

Oskar is working on the music while being in New York, adding new elements and influences to the sound of an old Swedish tradition.
The debut album was recorded at Studio Epidemin and is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Piatruba has toured in Sweden, Finland, Minneapolis, Chicago, Boston, Rochester, Washington D.C. and New York City.
