    There is a quality to the music of Scandinavia that seems born in the long winter months; it is dark and humorous, steeped in tradition yet sharply inventive. The Rough Guide to the Music of Scandinavia showcases some of the most adventurous sounds from the region, including the techno-joiking of Wimme, Icelandic minimalism by Amiina, and explosive experimentation by Kimmo Pohjonen with the Kronos Quartet.

    Scandinavia has a long tradition of musical innovation. From the dulcimer players and folk fiddlers of yore to the band of nineteenth-century classical composers (Nielsen, Sibelius, Rosenberg, Grieg) who consistently pushed the envelope, the Nordic region has always bristled with creativity. Nowadays contemporary musicians are fearless innovators unshackled by the politics of genre.

    An excellent bonus album from Finnish quartet Kardemimmit rounds off the package. Good friends, Maija, Jutta, Anna and Leeni, each play kantele and sing in delicate close harmony throughout, producing their trademark fresh and folksy style.

    Wee Man Says.....this album is seriously amazing. I love it!
