FRANCE’S WORLD-FAMOUS NORDIC COLLECTIVE RETURNS
Far from the lands of the North, the echoes of such legends still ring out. The beliefs of those who populate these distant lands have been perpetuated, and despite the pressures of modern industrial society, the old folk traditions live on. It was in the countries where the people we call Vikings were found to be – Norway, Denmark, Sweden, or Iceland – that the Huldufolk (“the hidden people”) remained anchored in their everyday lives and traditions. At roadsides, deep in the forests and in the heart of the mountains, elves and trolls huddled together in a discreet coexistence with humankind, melting into a strange and wonderful wilderness. And now, it’s from among those people born of a far-off imagination that the poetic, epic sounds of SKÁLD are now venturing forward!
