The nominees for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2021: What sounds are Nordic?

What sounds are Nordic? Are there common denominators or a language with which to talk about music – one that transcends both genres and borders?


The 13 nominees for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2021 will meet and discuss these questions on 1 November, the day before the award ceremony. You can enjoy their music and join the conversation by watching the film at the link above. The 13 nominations include singers, folk musicians, trumpeters, pianists, multi-instrumentalists and a DJ collective.


Participants: Eivør Pálsdóttir, Theatre of Voices, Anu Komsi, Verneri Pohjola, Þorgerður Ingólfsdóttir, Stian Carstensen, Lena Willemark and Peter Hägerstrand.
