For the last 20 years, KRAUKA has ravaged Viking markets and festivals in Lithuania and California, and countries in-between, and widespread the pagan words from the Viking era shook over a wild set of lyres, whistles, drums and live equipment.
KRAUKA is a unique orchestra both by virtue of compositions and instrumentation. Icelandic "Kvædemand" songs, shawm, lyre, jew harp, overtone- and bone flutes together with electric bass and drums create a magical and distinctive universe. The music is inspired by old Nordic melodies and Icelandic singing tradition, while the lyrics has roots in the Sagas and Nordic mythology.
KRAUKA has elements of Nordic folk music, crooked rhythms and modern folk and pop. Since the start 20 years ago, KRAUKA has toured throughout the North Europe, USA and the Baltic countries. KRAUKA has released 8 albums.
