North Atlantic Soundscapes - with slideshow on big screen
Angelika Nielsen violin, vocals; Thomas Loefke Celtic harp, photography
Angelika Nielsen - the Faroe Island's number one traditional fiddle player - and harpist Thomas Loefke combine in their soundscapes their own compositions - a hybrid of Celtic and Nordic music - with traditional music from the Faroes and Ireland.
With violin, harp and pictures the two musicians take their audiences on a breathtaking adventurous journey to the North Atlantic: Tory Island in the Northwest of Ireland, the Shetlands, Lofoten in the East, Iceland in the North and right in the middle: the Faroe Islands.
The music is accompanied by a slide show with photographs Thomas took during his island travels.
The Norðan CD is available now on Tutl and Laika records.
Videos, music and pictures are on the Norðan website: www.nordan.fo
