Origami ArktikaSomething a little different for today’s Daily Dose. Origami Arktika are an offshoot of Norwegian artistic collective Origami Republika who produce experimental folk music. The song featured today is from their recent album Absolut Gehör and was written by Aa. O. Vinje in 1866. The song is about Storegut, a character loosely based on Sterke-Nils. This is a love song, from a girl of the Huldre folk, the people living beyond the doors of the mountains. If you would like to know more about this, have a look at the Sterke-Nils Wikipedia page (in Norwegian, but translates quite well into English).
