Notes and Editorial Reviews

Slåttetralling is the Norwegian folk singer's way to present the instrumental music. When the dancers couldn't find a fiddle player, they used a singer. By imitating the fiddle and using improvised nonsense "words", the singer creates variations and a spectre of colours in the melodies. This way of using the voice is based on tradition documented in old archive recordings. Berit Opheim Versto brings the tradition to life in a modern soundscape.

Hybrid Super Audio-CD 5.0 SURROUND + STEREO. Plays on all standard players and computers.
