Sorten Muld (DK)

December 12, 2012

Sorten Muld (black soil /dark ground) is a Danish folktronica band, formed in 1995. They have won two Danish Grammys for Mark II.

Their music can be characterized by elegantly composed rhythms, floating sound of typical folk-instruments like bagpipes, flutes and violins, in an electronica-composition that supports the dramatic lyrics. Some tracks on Mark II are up-beat with only few lyrics and could also be characterized as dance or techno. A music critic on the US National Public Radio network described Ulla Bendixen’s voice as “…a sensuous whisper cajoling you to listen, even if you don’t understand Danish.”
