Dúplum dúó is inspired by modern poetry and contemporary performances of the Lieder. Björk Níelsdóttir and Þóra Sveinsdóttir evoke a direct, unpolished intimacy with the use of only voice and viola. They got to know each other at the Amsterdam University of Music and performed on many tours together with Björk, Sigur Rós, Florence and the Machine, and Stargaze, before they decided to form a group of their own. Their music is both raw and emotional. This release concert at the Nordic House turns over a new leaf for the group, and should simply not be missed.
Tickets can be bought on TIX.
