Annbjørg Lien - Prisme (Norway 1996) @VBR


On her third international solo album Lien goes new ways in relation to the musical tradition she carries. The traditional costume is left at home, and Prism is recorded with jeans on. The result is a typically un-Norwegian and Swedish sounding album, where Lien expands her horizons creating traditional folk music fused with modern instrumentation like percussion and electronic instruments, in addition to the classic wind and string instruments as we know from the Nordic traditional music.
