Jófríður Ákadóttir picks the tracks & talks about artistic freedom and experimentation
Sónar Reykjavík is here! Yay! The Icelandic edition of the international electronic music festival opens its doors tonight at Harpa.
Amongst the Icelandic performers tonight are Samaris, one of the recent young success stories from the Reykjavík scene. We talked to the band’s singer Jófríður Ákadóttir, also a member of Pascal Pinon and an in-demand collaborator, about Iceland’s artistic freedom, and the importance of play and experimentation.
She also unveils her new flash-music blog project called Angela, and chose tracks by Muted, Sin Fang, Young Karin, Antena and Todd Terje. Hear it below, and follow us on Mixcloud here for more podcasts.
