For this New Sounds, listen to music based on the traditions of northern Europe. Hear some punkass Polish nu-folk from the Warsaw Village Band's release, "Infinity" along with party music from Hedningarna, the "heathens" who remain true to the polska, a three-beat rhythm unique to Sweden.  Also, there's music from Denmark’s Sorten Muld, Norwegian/Sami singer Ande Somby, and more.
