Brøytingar (Kristian Blak & Yggdrasil)

"Brøytingar" is about change, about the inevitability of destruction in the name of progress. It is the reason that the melodies Blak has written are tinged with a sense of wistful melancholy. (Robert Iannapollo, Cadence, USA).

Since first hearing his work some three and a half years ago, I have looked forward to each new installment from the Faroe Islands - Kristian Blak's strong, melodic "nature jazz" mixing jazz with traditional folk and taped & live sounds of wind and water, birds and beasts. It was in a state of mild shock then that I sat after my first playing of "Brøytingar". (Bill Grant, Trans FM, Ontario, Canada).
