Looky, Loki: Annbjørg Lien and "Loki"
From Norway comes today's random tune by Annbjørg Lien. A player of the hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle), violin, and nyckelharpa, Lien first became known in Norway in the mid 1980s by combining traditional Norwegian music with jazz and rock. She is also a member of the String Sisters, a group of female string players from six different countries. This song, Loki, is from her album Baba Yaga (2000), and references the trickster god of Norse mythology.
