We are really looking forward to seeing the Icelandic singer/songwriter Svavar Knútur at Felleshus, rumor has it his live shows are amazing. He is not only a gifted singer/songwriter, but also a funny and heartwarming person. With his band Hraun, he was at the final 5 in BBC World Service’s Next Big Thing, playing for millions of viewers and listeners all over the world, receiving great critical acclaim.
Svavar Knútur has released 3 solo albums so far, and is also the winner of several awards, among others the 2012 Berlin Troubadour competition. His first album was recorded in his friend’s living room, in front of a room full of family and close friends, it is as intimate as an album can become.
We are happy to present Sounds like...Iceland: Svavar Knutur, which will take place as a part of the Play Nordic Festival at the Nordic Embassies’ Felleshus (open cultural house) - a 3-month long festival celebrating Nordic music, design and more from July 4th until October 1st 2014.
