World Music: Gjallarhorn, "Suvetar" (Goddess of Spring)

World Music: Gjallarhorn, "Suvetar" (Goddess of Spring)

(Sweden/Finland) "Gjallarhorn" takes its name from the instrument from Norse mythology, used to communicate between the world of Asgard and Midgard. It's an appropriate choice, as Gjallarhorn has chosen to concentrate its repertoire on the folk music of Swedes within Norway, as well as the music of  both countries.  "Suvetar" is a rune song which calls upon the Goddess of Spring to awaken the world. It is simple in its structure, but the band surrounds it with layers of sound that build to a complex textural experience.
