Concert with Yggdrasil – “Lipet Ei”



Concert at The Nordic House April 28th at 8 PM

Yggdrasil is a Nordic ensemble based in the Faroe Islands. Formed in 1981 by composer & pianist Kristian Blak, who has written most of the material for the group, it has included from the very beginning musicians from other countries.

Yggdrasil has, from its inception, had a distinct concept. Most compositions have been created in collaboration with other forms of art or, in some cases, with nature. Musicians that have been part of the ensemble, whether on long-term basis or as participants in a particular project, have varied musical backgrounds, mainly in jazz, but also in ethnic, folk, rock and classical music. While the works draw ideas or themes from ethnic material, improvisation ranges from free to classical style.

Over the years, many musicians and artists have contributed to Yggdrasil’s projects, which include visual art, poetry, ballet, opera, concertos in grottos; and essential to the Yggdrasil concept is that the personality of each individual member of the ensemble be heard or seen. This makes Yggdrasil’s sound truly unique.
