About Seta

Yggdrasil is a Faroese ensemble formed in 1981 by composer & pianist Kristian Blak, who has written most of the material for the group. From the very beginning musicians from other countries have been part of the line-up.

Richard Nunns is a Mãori traditional instrumentalist. He is particularly known for playing taonga pūoro and his collaboration with fellow Mãori instrumentalist Hirini Melbourne. Nunns holds an honorary life membership of the New Zealand Flute Association. In 2001, Nunns recieved a citation for services to music from the Composers Association of New Zealand. He was bestowed an honorary doctorate by Victoria University of Wellington in 2008 for his contributions to taonga pūoro.

Seta  – Faroese for meeting/gathering – a combination of music set in natural and studio settings, bringing together musical instruments and ideas from Nordis and Mãori traditions. Recorded in the Faroe Islands in the cave Klæmintsgjógv on the island of Hestur and in Jónas Blochs’ studio overlooking Hest Fjord. It is recorded in May 2008 and produced by Heðin Ziska Davidsen and Kristian Blak.
