  • If I were to express an interest in Nordic Folk music....

    Where the **************** would I start? It's time for me to gather more musical education.

    Below, two versions of the same song.


    Hanoi Rocks' Sami Yaffa makes this as authentic as  possible... the Roma tradition is deep in Finland.



    I consider myself priveldged to internet-know the trumpet player... he used to post at HC in 2005, but left around the same time I did. We ended up in the same small circle of friends at another place. By the way, that's a real Firebird he's playing...but only brassers would recognize it.

    Yeah, the "nyckelharpa" is an instrument unique to Scandinavia as far as I know.

    I love swedish folk music, a lot of beautiful melodies but the clothes... :smileylol:

    Anyway, why not check out Benny Andersson's (one of the ABBA dudes) orchestra?

    This piece is called Ringa mina klockor, Ring my bells.

    Klinga mina klockor

    Dont believe in anything, that way everything is possible.
