Krummavísur – Andras Atlason
“Krummavísur” is an Icelandic song with text written by Jón Thoroddsen (1818–1868). After its opening line, the lament of a starving raven in winter is also known as “Krummi svaf í klettagjá”. On this track, timelessness and liquidity intersect as Andras Atlason presents this striking, well-known folk theme in surprisingly creative harmonic and rhythmic settings. Enacted in a new language, an ancient text-image of the crow invades the second decade of the XXth century.
