As we hear in this edition of New Sounds, since the 1990s, the Scandanavian folk music scene has enjoyed a major resurgence. We hear Agnes Buen Garnas, a Norwegian traditional singer who performs songs based on medieval origins in the disc, Rosensfole. The disc is a precursor to Garbarek's later project with the Hilliard Ensemble, but has a distinctive beauty all its own. We also hear from Värttinä, a product of the the folk music department at Helsinki's Sibelius Academy in the 1980s; traditional-based Swedish folk music group Garmarna; and Iceland’s Sverrir Gudjonsson.
