Four Nordic Songs To Our World
With Birgitte Grimstad - Digital EP
The four songs reflect the actual world with wars and climate changes.
The repertoire for OUR Recordings new release FOUR NORDIC SONGS TO OUR WORLD was carefully chosen by Danish-born Norwegian singer, guitarist, composer and writer Birgitte Grimstad, the daughter of Danish tenor Axel Schiøtz. The poems are a reflection and commentary on the current situation in the world with all its wars, greed and climate change as well as offering alternative perspectives
to the younger generation for the future. Birgitte’s interpretations speak with the compassion and authority of a woman who lived through many of the world’s most turbulent period with a voice so strong that you cannot help but listen and reflect!
