Last night we went and saw Eivør live in concert at the Reykjavik opera house. The concert was amazing. She's amazing. I can't say it enough. With a powerful and unique voice, she has a way of taking you to another place through her performance. I bought her Cd, though it is wonderful in it's own right, she's one of few performers that sound better live than recorded. Eivør is the real deal.
The best part of the night was when she sang freestyle, only her and her drum. One of the most inspiring musical performances I've ever seen. Hypnotic and tribal at the same time. There's an earthiness to her presence, singing barefoot, and totally committed to her craft.
If you haven't heard of her you will soon, and she's from the Faroe Islands of all places.
