Askur (Kristian Blak & Yggdrasil)

Yggdrasil is a Nordic ensemble based in the Faroe Islands. Formed in 1981 by composer & pianist Kristian Blak, who has written most of the material for the group, it has included from the very beginning musicians from other countries. The line-up of the band has changed organically over the years. Like new branches of the tree, some of the musicians are a generation or more younger than those who founded the group. As an ensemble, Yggdrasil continues its growth in exploring new paths of musical expression.
