EINAR SELVIK

Einar Selvik is a Norwegian composer, main musician and founder of the Norwegian musical constellation Wardruna, a project dedicated to create musical renditions of different Norse cultural and esoteric traditions. By using the oldest Nordic instruments, poetry and poetic metres in a contemporary soundscape, Einar has managed to merge the scholarly with the pop-cultural and given a new voice to old thoughts, tools and techniques, reaching an audience world-wide and beyond limitations of musical genres. In this skaldic performance, Einar takes us on a musical journey outside the massive soundscape of Wardruna and into a simpler and more direct form where voice, poetry and instruments like Kravik-lyre, Tagelharpe and Bukkehorn are leading the way.
