The Faroe Islands may be the island musical capital of the world. One reason for this is the songwriter Eivør. Possessing a voice of rare beauty and power, her earliest forays into music making were steeped in the traditions of her youth. An enduring love for traditional Faroese culture remains at the heart of her work, although its expression has been widened by an array of other musical styles, taking in jazz, country, big band, classical and trip hop. Already well known in Iceland, Denmark and the US, Eivør is poised for world superstardom, which looks every more likely now that major broadcasters like the BBC are snapping up her work for epic drama serials.
