HOYMAbit no 07 is set in the home of teacher and glass artist, Sædis Eilifsdóttir, and featuring a performance by three times Nordic Counsil Music Prize nominee Kári Sverrisson.
After the concert we will be served home made traditional and local food tasters, prepared and served by Karl, a small scale local farmer. Plus local beer, water, coffee and home made desserts.
There will be a chance to chat and to visit Sædis’ glass workshop and see her art.
Kári Sverrisson is known in the Faroes as a solo singer and for his work with influential folk band Enekk, his work with groundbreaking band Orka and his work with the rock band Bendar Spónir. Kári is an expert in traditional Faroese music and has consistently drawn inspiration from Faroese traditions, renewing them and mixing them with other traditions to make new music.
With the band Enekk Kári was an inspiration for a new generation of Faroese rock and jazz musicians who were re-discovering the traditional music of the islands. Bands who have credited Enekk and Kári for being a great influense include viking metal band Týr and indie rock band Clickhaze that later dissolved and set of the solo careers of members Eivor, Hogni, Orka and others.
