About this Artist

Posted By Wardruna

Wardruna is a Norwegian music group dedicated to create musical renditions of Norse cultural and esoteric traditions.

With the use of the oldest Nordic instruments and poetic metres, lyrics written in Norwegian, Norse and proto-Norse tongue, Wardruna sets out to give new voice to ancient and ever-relevant ideas and wisdom from the past.

The group was founded in 2002 by Einar Selvik. After the release of their debut album in 2009, they have patiently established themselves internationally as important communicators of Norse and Nordic cultural heritage. Wardruna are known for doing relatively few, but often very special concerts, and always to high acclaim. The most spectacular example is perhaps when they performed in front of the majestic 1100-year-old Gokstad ship at the Viking Ship Museum in Norway.

During the last three years Wardruna and Einar has reached a wider audience through his substantial musical involvement in History Channel’s hit TV series Vikings. On two occasions Einar has also appeared on-screen in a guest role.
