everything about this… this statue, the choppy waves, the cliffs behind her, the echo, the drumming….. aesthetic
Lyrics in Faroese:
Trøllabundin eri eg eri egGaldramaður festi meg festi megTrøllabundin djúpt í míni sál í míni sálÍ hjartanum logar brennandi bál brennandi bál
Trøllabundin eri eg eri egGaldramaður festi meg festi megTrøllabundin inn í hjartarót í hjartarótEyga mítt festist har ið galdramaður stóð
Spellbound am I, am IThe wizard has enchanted me, enchanted meSpellbound deep in my soul, in my soulIn my heart burns a smouldering fire, smouldering fire
Spellbound am I, am IThe wizard has enchanted me, enchanted meSpellbound in my heart’s root, my heart’s root
Did anyone else just get the shivers? Cuz I’m definitely getting the shivers.
Btdubs, the singer is Eivør Pálsdóttir.
Reblogging again for the haunting wizard lyrics
shoutout to the faroe island for being the only real viking island left
I know the islands are owned by Denmark but this reminds me so much of Iceland
Fun fact this woman is trying to single handedly preserve this kind of singing in her culture by performing and making people aware of it because it’s been fading with time and she’s afraid if she doesn’t spread it it will disappear and be lost to future generations
