BERIT OPHEIM VERSTO
Slåttar på tunga
Slåttetralling is the Norwegian folk singer's way to present the instrumental music. When the dancers couldn't find a fiddle player, they used a singer. By imitating the fiddle and using improvised nonsense "words", the singer creates variations and a spectre of colours in the melodies. This way of using the voice is based on tradition documented in old archive recordings. The tunes have also been passed on orally in personal encounters from generation to generation. Berit Opheim Versto brings the tradition to life in a modern soundscape.
