This release from Danish Trio Gáman is a combination of traditional Nordic folk music and new compositions from Nordic composers Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Sunleif Rasmussen and Rune Glerup. The old and the new are combined in a journey through place and time in the North – with drum songs from Greenland, chain-dances from the Faroe Islands and wedding music from the island of Fanø, Denmark.
