I have been listening to The Nest Collective radio program on resonance radio for the last couple of months and it has been a wonderful source of new music for me, music I am sure I would not have heard anywhere else.
This weeks show featured Ulli Mattson live along with other recorded music by Nordic performers. The one besides Ulli that grabbed my ears was Aurora. Once again here is the link to the show and youtube videos of a couple of beautiful songs. The program is well worth a listen.
What is considered folk music is much broader and has a lot of elements of pop music than it used to, but what I notice about the videos is the female performers are for the most part dressed more than not. They are women singing not objects of desire. I like that. I am definitely into the music.
