Icelandic Music: Bjork and More
COLUMBIA, Md., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Music professionals have said the voices of Icelandic singers blend together so tightly that you'd think they were all siblings. The quality and the purity are exceptional. Maybe it has something to do with the fresh air or the pristine water. Whatever it is, it is obvious that the international music scene has been infused with a sound that has captured audiences around the globe. Where once Bjork and the Sugarcubes were an Icelandic anomaly, her fame and popularity are now stronger than ever, considering the buzz surrounding her US appearances and the release of her latest CD. In her wake, groups like Leaves, Sigur Ros, Gus Gus, Mum, Minus, have mounted a sort of Icelandic invasion on the global stage. And it's not all Alternative music any more. The classical voice of tenor Gardar Thor Cortes is attracting crowds to his concerts in Britain and will surely draw raves from Il Divo fans when he reaches the shores of America. He's easy on the eyes, too. Hip hop, jazz, funk, rock. It's all there. And best of all, it's all over Iceland. Walk around the popular club area of downtown Reykjavik on any given night and you're sure to find an array of live music in its colorful bars and pubs. Sit and listen or dance your heart out. Your choice. Iceland has become the "in" destination in Europe. Its awe-inspiring Nature is legendary. Dig a little deeper and you'll discover that the heart and soul of Iceland is in its art, its culture and its music. Whatever your taste, it's easy to find in Iceland.
