Artist Biography
Wardruna is a Norwegian musical constellation set out to explore and evoke the depths of heathen Germanic wisdom and spirituality. Musically Wardruna has its main focus on the cultic musical language found in the near-forgotten arts of galdr, seidr and the daily acts of the cultic life, mixed with impulses from Scandinavian and Nordic folk music. They formed in 2003 in Bergen, Norway.

The album entitled ‘Gap var Ginnunga’ is the first in a planned trilogy that will interpret the runes of the Elder Futhark. Each album will feature eight runes, but not in accordance with the order of the three aettirs (families), which is most commonly used. Recordings partly take place outdoors at locations relevant to the different runes. The utilized instruments are mainly old and historical instruments such as deer-hide frame drums and ceremonial drums, mouth harp (Jew’s harp), clove/hoof rattles from deer and goat, bone flute, goat and cow horns, Hardanger fiddle and bowed lyre, also more unconventional inputs like trees, stones, water, fire etc. are employed to enhance the nature of the rune being ‘portrayed’.
