Carpe Diem #1507 Folk music of the Faroe Islands

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Yesterday we visited Argentina and listened to their wonderful Tango music and it was a joy. Today we will go further on our journey around the world on a quest for folkmusic. What will be our new destination? Well ... we will visit the Faroe Islands and one of their renown musicians is Eivor Palsdottir. I think we have had one of her songs earlier in our rich history. I think it was in a CD Special written by our Hamish Managua Gunn about Shaman Haiku, a kind of haiku inspired on the ancient rituals of the shaman. A nice CD Special to read again with a lot of wonderful "shaman"-haiku.

Awesome music from the Faroe Islands by renown singer Eivor. Enjoy listening and watching this beautiful music video.

Here is a "shaman"-haiku from my archives:

an eagle points the path of the shaman
