cd cover Onkelfolke
Kasta Beinet (NOR CD)

Onkelfolke is another good example of the new-folk-wave in contemporary Norway. They play new compositions based on the traditions of their home regions of Nordmøre, Rogaland and Vest-Agder, sometimes combining regional influences into something genuinely new and unique to modern Norway. Folk songs, ballads, springar, pols and halling dance tunes find a new lift in the skilled hands of these musicians.
