Kristian Blak & Yggdrasil (Tutl Records)
Yggdrasil
$16.99

Compositions and arrangements by Kristian Blak for the Nordic ensemble Yggdrasil and Faroese singer Eivør Pálsdóttir. Yggdrasil is the World Tree in Norse mythology. The mighty tree's branches reach up above the heavens, and its three roots pass into the realms of the Æsir and of the frost giants and descend deep into the underworld. In the very top of Yggdrasil sits an eagle, keeping watch. The three Norns water and nurture the tree each day, while the great serpent Niðhøgg, together with a host of lesser snakes, gnaws at its root. Thus the tree is in a state of cosmic equilibrium, constantly threatened and devoured as it grows and fourishes.

Eivør Pálsdóttir: vocal, Tore Brunborg: tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, Anders Hagberg: flute, bass flute, seljefløjte, Kristian Blak: piano, Anders Jormin: bass, Brandur Jacobsen: drums, percussion

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
