Close, But Yet So Faroe

The generally accepted theory is that the indigenous people came here to Turtle Island thousands of years ago from the north west. A few hundred years ago people began coming here from the north east. Many came from the Orkney Islands and later Iceland. Between these Atlantic Ocean islands lies a group of isles known collectively as the Faroe Islands. The music of all these varied cultures has come together here as part of a much larger mosaic of cultures and the result is refreshing.
Eivør Pálsdóttir, comes from the Faroes and performs in a variety of genres primarily in Faroese, Icelandic and English. This song has many similar qualities to the music of Turtle Island. Very real. Very natural.

In music, we are one.
