Huldufólk by SKÁLD
Brought into common knowledge in Snorri Sturluson’s Prose Edda, the huldufólk (hidden-ones/hidden-people) of Icelandic and Faroese mythology, and to a wider extent Norse mythology, are enchanting and supernatural beings. Also called Elves, they are similar to us mere mortals but can make themselves invisible at will. Existing in nature, these magical folk are held in high regard, as an old Icelandic belief warns against throwing stones should you hurt the hidden ones. Now, French-Nordic collective SKÁLD bring their story to life, alongside a collection of tales from Scandinavia’s rich mythology. With hypnotic rhythms and ethereal vocals that transport you back to the early Medieval Period with a pinch of fantasy thrown in, these modern day skálds offer a beautifully vivid escape into the mists of time.
