Nordic Woman

"Nordic Woman" is the first music collection in an ongoing WOMAN-series dedicated to celebrating women's voices and musical heritage from around the world. It features some of the most foremost female performers from the traditional music field in Norway, and it's neighboring countries.


Kristiane Lund

Gamle meisterspelemenn på 78-plater - III

Kristiane Lund (1889-1976) played the fiddle all her life, and was among the very first performers of traditional music to be recorded in Norway. The earliest tracks included on this record from Buen Kulturverkstad are from 1919.


Gamle meisterspelemenn på 78-plater

Here you can listen to some of the oldest recorded traditional music from Norway, played by Ola Mosafinn (1822 - 1912) and Knut J. Dahle (1834 - 1921). The relatively poor sound quality, transmitted from old 78 rpm records, cannot hide the richness and the beauty of the music.

Sudan Dudan is the duo of Marit Karlberg (vocals, norwegian zither) and Anders E. Røine (guitar, vocals). With a wide range of musical influences they’ve created a unique sound, working their way trough the material of traditional ballads, shanties and lullabies. Sudan Dudan played at Folkelarm 2011.
