Nordic Initiative (artist release)
17.99

A vocal quartet established in Leeds, England by four Norwegian singers - Kari Nergaard Bleivik, Therese Ulvan, Cecilie Giskemo and Maria Jardardottir - who perform original music written and arranged by the members of the group. The repetoire includes a wide-ranging group of styles - traditional Norwegian folk music, vocal jazz, improvisation in a traditional folk vein as well as avant garde free improv, interpretations of ethnic music from around the world and classical art music. The cohesion lies in the unique quality of the voices joined together, their interest in both tradition and experimentation, and their joyous exhuberance.
(Note: this band was originally known as Trolldom)
