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.

Berit Opheim Versto from Voss is one of Norway's foremost folk singers. She is a very versatile singer, frequently performing across genre boundaries, drawing inspiration from such diverse areas as traditional music, early music, improvisation and contemporary music.
