Racines Nordik - Les Bâtards du Nord


Tras su disolución en 2013, el grupo canadiense/francófono (viking folk) Les Bâtards du Nord han regresado con un nuevo disco llamado Racines Nordik, con una docena de temas en su línea habitual, muy propios para ser cantados/coreados tanto en una pequeña taberna como en un festival multitudinario. Sus fuentes básicas son nórdicas, pero también celtas e incluso del folclore local de su Quebec natal.

Sverdet (The sword) by Kjell Braaten


Sverdet (The sword)
by Kjell Braaten

The music is a mix between Viking/ medieval music and world music. And is composed for Vera Henriksen play about the Norwegian Viking king Olav Haraldson, his sword Baesing and his struggle between christianity and paganism.

All tracks composed, performed, recorded and produced by Kjell Braaten except 03 (Voice by Marcus Hannestad), 10 (Based on a melody by Gustav Holberg).

1. Olav gets his sword. Rane Roesson delivers the sword Baesing to Olav Haraldsson as a child. Rane trains Olav in sword- fighting.

2. Olavs party. King Olav has a party. He binds his closest friends (Torberg, Kalv and Finn Arnesson) to him and gets his own poet/ singer (skald) Sigvat.

3. Olav gets baptized. Olav gets baptized in Rouen. - You can hear both the pagan and the Christian powers, and Olavs struggle between them...

4. Love Theme. Olav meets Astrid, his prospective wife and queen.

5. Olav leaves Baesig with bishop Grimkjel. King Olav gives the sword (Baesing) To Bishop Grimkjel to show that he has become a good Christian and given up the paganism. He then rides out of town (Borg) to conquer... 

6. Unsafe times. These sounds set the mood to a long part of the play. Olav loses many people and ships. The Danish takes over a lot of Norway (also Olavs town Borg (today Sarpsborg)). Just before the next track he loses against the Danish King Knut and has to abandon about one hundred ships with goods and warriors... 

7. Olav returns to Borg. Olav returns to Borg (Witch now is taken by the danes) to take back Baesing (The pagan sword). He believes that the sword gives him the powers to rule Norway, But Bishop Grimkjel does not agree...

8. The battle of Stiklestad. The battle of Stiklestad (July 1030). One of the most famous battles in Norway, now known to be the start of the Christian times in Norway. The king brings his men to a fight against the locals that has sworn their trust to King Knut of Denmark. In the middle of the battle, he suddenly throws his sword away, and Thore Hund spear him to death.

9. The king is dead. The king is dead... 

10. Applause.

El hijo de Egil, Daneheim



El grupo danés de folk ambiental Danheim ha publicado una canción basada en un fragmento del poema Sonatorrek, escrito por el skáld islandés Egil Skallagrimsson cuando murió ahogado su hijo Bødvar. Egil, en su desesperación, se encerró en su habitación negándose a hablar con nadie e incluso a comer. Allí increpó al mismísimo Odín por haberle arrebatado esa vida, cuando él siempre fue un fiel seguidor del jefe del Asgard.





Egilsson

Tungt og trægt 


tungen løftes, 



at løfte vægten 



med versets skat; 



Odins tyvegods 



ikke let fundet, 



tungt at slæbe 



fra sindets skjul.




La lengua se resiste a alzarse en mi boca,
no puedo levantar la balanza del verso;
no encuentro placer en el néctar de Odín.

Gleipnir

Af dyn kattarins
Ok af skeggi konunnar
Ok af rótum bjargsins
Ok af sinum bjarnarins
Ok af anda fisksins
Ok af fogls hráka
 
Eg Gleipnir heitir
 
Af dyn kattarins
Ok af skeggi konunnar
Ok af rótum bjargsins
Ok af sinum bjarnarins
Ok af anda fisksins
Ok af fogls hráka
 
Eg Gleipnir heitir
 
Vildi engi sína hönd fram selja fyrr
En týr lét fram hönd sína hœgri
Vildi engi sína hönd fram selja fyrr
En týr lét fram hönd sína hœgri
Vildi engi sína hönd fram selja fyrr
En týr lét fram hönd sína hœgri
Vildi engi sína hönd fram selja fyrr
En týr lét fram hönd sína hœgri
 
(x6)
Af dyn kattarins
Ok af skeggi konunnar
Ok af rótum bjargsins
Ok af sinum bjarnarins
Ok af anda fisksins
Ok af fogls hráka
 
Eg Gleipnir heitir
 
Hann grenjar illiliga
Ok slefa renn ór munni hans
Þat er á sú er ván heitir
Þar liggr hann, til Ragnarökrs!!!

Gleipnir

The noise of footsteps of cat
And the beard of a woman
And the roots of a rock
And the sinews of a bear
And the breath of a fish
And the spittle of a bird
 
Gleipnir is my name
 
The noise of footsteps of cat
And the beard of a woman
And the roots of a rock
And the sinews of a bear
And the breath of a fish
And the spittle of a bird
 
Gleipnir is my name
 
No one would give up his hand
Until Týr extended his right hand
No one would give up his hand
Until Týr extended his right hand
No one would give up his hand
Until Týr extended his right hand
No one would give up his hand
Until Týr extended his right hand
 
(x6)
The noise of footsteps of a cat
And the beard of a woman
And the roots of a rock
And the sinews of a bear
And the breath of a fish
And the spittle of a bird
 
Gleipnir is my name
 
He howls awfully
And spit runs out of his mouth
It's a river called Ván
There he lies until Ragnarök!!!
