Icelandic Music Played at Paris Festival

Icelandic music will be featured in this year’s “Festival d’Ile de France” which is dedicated to various places on the seafront. On September 14 songs from 13th century Iceland will be performed at a church in the Parisian district of Le Vexin.

Performers include the Carmina Choir and the Vocal Ensemble of Reykjavík under direction of Árni Heimir Ingólfsson, who will sing in a special Icelandic style called tvísöngur (“twin song”).

Other concerts held during the “Festival d’Ile de France” include music from Hawaii, the Caribbean, the British Isles, the Philippines and other regions that are situated on the seafront, called “finistères” in French or “the land’s end.”
