Trollfageln (The Magic Bird) – Emilia Amper, nyckelharpa

Emila Amper TrollfagelnIt’s all about the nyckelharpa in Global Sounds today. This traditional Swedish fiddle uses keys to change the length of the strings and create different notes. It almost died out in the middle of the 20th century, but thanks largely to the efforts of master player Eric Sahlström it’s made a comeback. These days you can even study it at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, as did our featured musician Emilia Amper (BIS 992013)
