SOUNDS OF ICELAND — FOUR DAYS OF CROSSING MUSICAL GENRES AT THE KONZERTHAUS

SOUNDS OF ICELAND — FOUR DAYS OF CROSSING MUSICAL GENRES AT THE KONZERTHAUS

Icelandic music is known for having no reservations about crossing genres or crossing oceans and borders – this time all the way to the heart of Berlin for “Sounds of Iceland“, a four-day festival at Konzerthaus Berlin. Starting next week (14.–17.11.2019) the beautiful concert hall at Gendarmenmarkt will host a celebration of musical talent from the volcanic island, bringing together an eclectic line-up of artists such as jazz quartet ADHD, whose performances inspired by the forces of nature will transport you to a sky full of northern lights; multi-instrumentalist and singer Jófríður Ákadóttir of JFDR, deservingly deemed “the next Björk”; and artist in residence Víkingur Ólafsson, who will close the festival with a performance accompanied by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. Our tip: let the music wash over you at the Singer-Songwriter Night as Sóley, Snorri and their guests give a glimpse into how Icelanders turn the long dark nights into pure creativity!
