Seven Winds – Rolf-Erik Nystrøm

SEVEN WINDS : Sju vindar · Eg stoggar under den gamle eiki ein regnvêrsdag / Lat snø og vinter falla · Eg lyt finna på noko gale · Kor lenge har du sove · Det er den draumen · Vegar · Isen gjeng upp · Me sigler ikkje same havet · Einmore… havmåse · I dag og imorgon / Dette lyt du bera · Kirsebærtreet · Elvi burtanum fjorden (All lyrics: Olav H. Hauge)

Unni Løvlid · Becaye Aw · Rolf-Erik Nystrøm

Seven Winds from Løvlid, Aw and Nystrøm

It all started in 2008 when the three musicians Unni Løvlid, Becaye Aw, and Rolf-Erik Nystrøm were asked by “Dei Nynorske Festspela” if they could make a commission based on texts from the well known Norwegian poet Olav H.Hauge. This resulted in melodies to many of his poems, both in funk, ballade, jazz, folk, new music – actually all the music that Seven Winds thinks fits best to the different poems. Their music is inspired by Olav H. Hauge, and the different musical styles that the musicians represent, their ability to make new expressions, their intense concert schedule, and their wish to make the songs as near Hauges poems as possible. During their world tour in 2008, they’ve included the different languages and musical styles inviting different musicians and poets to join them on stage, and Hauges poems has been preformed in New Norwegian, Chinese, French, Fulani, Hindi, Swahili and Korean. In the CD-cover you can find some of Hauges poems translated to 16 different languages.
