Voluspá Music Video • 8 Nov. 2018

I recently spent three blessed and life-altering days together with a small pack of wolves, their caretakers and some of the finest people in Finnish film, all led by Tuukka Koski and Koski Syväri. We made a video to my rendition of the Old Norse poem Voluspá (Prophecy of the Seeress) that you can now watch on our YouTube and Vimeo channels on the links below. The song is released digitally on all platforms tomorrow.

Hugsjá – World Premiere in Bergen • 15 Feb. 2017

Bergen International Festival will feature new music by Wardruna’s Einar Selvik and Ivar Bjørnson from Enslaved in May–June this year.

New work by Einar Selvik (Wardruna, Vikings) and Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) will be featured by the Bergen International Festival in May–June this year.

Selvik and Bjørnson’s new collaborative endeavours Nordvegen and Hugsjá continues to combine the ancient and contemporary with Norse and Norwegian poetry, accompanied by instruments from the Stone Age up to the present day.

A series of concerts under the name Nordvegen (‘the northern road’ – an ancient shipping route connecting Norway to the rest of world for some 3000 years), will be performed in four venues along the west coast of Norway in late May and early June. The audience will be taken on a spectacular journey along this route in a musical declaration of love to Norwegian coastal culture and Norse history. Bjørnson and Selvik have designed the concerts inspired by local history for each of these places. The Nordvegen concerts create an acoustic and intimate basis for the grandiose commissioned work Hugsjá, which will receive its world premiere Bergen concert hall Grieghallen on May 31.

The word hugsjá means to remember – literally ‘to see in the mind’. Focused on ideas, traditions and instruments from our Norse past, the work recounts Norwegian history while drawing lines to the present.

For details about the concerts, dates and venues, please visit http://www.fib.no/en

Tickets are on sale from February 15.
