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. Einar has also contributed extensively on the soundtrack for History Channels´s TV-series VIKINGS.
In this concert Einar will demonstrate a selection of the oldest Nordic instruments as well as perform fully acoustic Wardruna songs. He will give explanations to his songs and speak about his approach and study of Norse traditions and historical music as well as the extensive creative concept behind his own creations.
Your market ticket is also valid for the concert :)
