Happening Tonight: Author Unknown

Published June 19, 2015

It’s been 100 years since women’s suffrage in Iceland, but the country still has a long way to go. Did you know that Icelandic female composers receive less than 10% of the country’s royalties? Ten percent! In order to showcase the extraordinary talent of Icelandic female composers, Harpa is hosting Author Unknown. Featuring tunes composed by female artists like Björk, Hafdís Huld and Emilíana Torrini, with an all-male cast of performers, this gender-role-reversal-concert is bound to be a night to remember. To top it all off, punk performers Ragga Gísla (of Grýlurnar fame), Dúkkulísurnar and Kolrassa Krókríðandi will rock out the finale.
