IVAR BJØRNSON AND EINAR SELVIK

Nordic Folk Music from Norway

Skuggsjá is a musical piece written by Ivar Bjørnson and Wardruna's Einar Selvik.
The growing desire to present Skuggsjá to a broader audience has ultimately led the Bjørnson and Selvik to record the piece in its entirety.
Skuggsjá translates into ‘mirror’ or ‘reflection’ in the Norse language, and the piece not only contextualizes harder music’s role in the democracy in Norway in 2014, but also joins threads from the country’s ancient musical history and solidifies harder music’s position as Norway`s most important cultural export.
By highlighting ideas, traditions and instruments of their Norse past, it tells the history of Norway and reflect relevant aspects from the past into the present day.
In a magnificent tapestry of metal instrumentation, a wide variety of Norway´s and Scandinavia’s oldest instruments, and poetry in Norse and Norwegian, it is a fusion between past and present, both lyrically and musically.

FORNDOM

Nordic Folk Music from Sweden

Since it's birth in 2012, Forndom has been a multi-project consisting of art and atmospheres from the ancient Sudermannia plains,
filled with rune stones, mound hills and dark forests.
With the sound of ambient choirs, folk melodies and lyrical themes consisting of Norse religion and folklore,
the man behind the project, L. Swärd, takes us on a journey back in time when humanity lived far more close to nature and it's gods.
Forndom is more than just a simple art-project. It is also the philosophy of L. Swärd and how he looks upon the world.
A world filled with melancholy for the lost connection with nature. But also hope for that we one day will find our lost wisdom.

7 tracks of Pagan Folk / Ambient music.
