After the success of their previous collaboration "Skuggsjá"; Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Einar
Selvik (Wardruna) are now following up with an imposing new piece entitled "Hugsjá".
By weaving together indigenous and contemporary thoughts, sounds and instruments, Ivar
Bjørnson and Einar Selvik are inviting you on a vivid journey - exploring the distant history and
traditions along coastal Norway. "Hugsjá" was first commissioned by, and performed at, Bergen
International Festival in 2017, as part a series of concerts named Nordvegen ("the northern road");
inspired by local history and traditions in each of the places visited. The Nordvegen concerts
created an acoustic and intimate basis for the grandiose commissioned work, "Hugsjá". The piece
received its world premiere in Bergen's premiere concert hall Grieghallen, and ultimately the
material was recorded and became this full-length album. Roadburn 2018 will be both the release
party and international live debut of "Hugsjá", the album.
