Description
Scandinavian music can be darkly humorous, steeped in tradition yet sharply inventive. This collection showcases some of its most adventurous sounds, including Icelandic minimalism by Amiina; Värttinä's quartet of singers backed by six instrumentalists; Wimme, who improvises a joik (an ancient form of Sami song) backed by drum loops; and Kimmo Pohjonen's explosive experimentations with the Kronos Quartet. Most selections come from Finland, Norway, and Sweden, but there are also tunes from Iceland, Greenland, Denmark, and Samiland (Lapland). The bonus CD is by Kardemimmit, an all-female, Finnish quartet that specializes in the mellifluous kantele, the tones of which resemble a hammered dulcimer or zither.
