Day 5: My virtual trip to Denmark

10 Feb

I am deep into The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal. It is set in 16th century Scandinavia, so my Scandophilia (love of all things Scandinavian) is in high gear. I’ve been listening to CDs of Danish folk music I have by a band called Phønix and a singer named Morten Alfred Høirup, who has a number of projects including a band named Himmerland.

Here are a couple of samples:

Phønix – Hvor du vender dig

Lydom, Bugge & Høirup playing in the streets of Copenhagen!

And my favorite Danish folksong :

Som Stjernerne på Himlens Blå  – DitteFromseier Mortensen

I’ve been cooped up too long. I have to go out later, by foot,  to get coffee and few other things. I think a change of scenery will be good for me.
