Wardruna

Biography – Facebook Wardruna
Wardruna is a Norwegian music group founded by Einar Kvitrafn Selvik. In 2009 Wardruna enchanted their listeners with their mesmerizing debut album ‘gap var Ginnunga’, which also was the first part of a planned trilogy. In the ensuing years the group have spent a lot of time on adapting their music to a live format and establishing a live band. This resulting in a handful of very special concerts, perhaps most notably when they performed in front of the majestic 1100-year-old Gokstad ship at the Viking Ship Museum in Norway.

With the use of the oldest of Nordic instruments and poetic metres as well as lyrics written in Norwegian, Old Norse and Proto-Norse tongue, Wardruna is now, after nearly three years in the making, finally ready to return with the second album in the ‘Runaljod’ trilogy entitled ‘Yggdrasil’. Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Einar Kvitrafn Selvik has, together with vocalists Kristian Espedal (aka Gaahl) and Lindy-Fay Hella, managed to make ​​a strikingly beautiful and intense continuation of what was started with their first album, but without falling into the trap of merely repeating themselves. ‘Yggdrasil’ is also graced with guest appearances by renowned Icelandic composer Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson and Iceland’s leading rímur singer Steindór Andersen.

The ongoing ‘Runaljod’ trilogy is a musical rendition of the 24 runes in what is often referred to as the elder futhark. Some of the recordings are done outdoors in places or under circumstances of significance to each rune. Wardruna primarily use old and historical instruments such as primitive deer-hide frame drums, Kraviklyra, tagelharpe, mouth harp, goat horn, lur and more. Non-traditional instruments and other sources of sound like trees, rocks, water and torches are also used.


All of these elements are carefully woven into a rich musical landscape and complemented with whispering voices, melodic song and mighty choirs. Although Wardruna’s music share characteristics with music typically labeled as folk, world and/or ambient, none of these genres can really describe their unique style. It truly must be experienced.

Tout droit venu de Norvège, Wardruna porte haut l’étendard musical des traditions culturelles et ésotériques nordiques. Au travers d’instruments ancestraux et de son folk païen, le groupe ressuscite la poésie scandinave d’autrefois, insufflant une nouvelle voix aux croyances séculaires et à la sagesse du passé.  Fondé en 2002 par Einar Selvik (ancien batteur du groupe de black metal Gorgoroth), Wardruna a sorti son premier album en 2009 et s’est imposé au fil des ans au niveau international comme porte-voix de l’héritage culturel nordique. Connu pour faire relativement peu de concerts, le groupe privilégie les endroits particuliers et différents, à l’instar des arènes d’Avenches et y promet un concert d’anthologie et d’exception. Ces trois dernières années, grâce à son implication musicale dans la BO de la série télévisée à succès «Vikings», Wardruna a touché un public beaucoup plus large et s’est construit une solide réputation dans de nombreux pays.
