Kirsten Braten Berg

Owing to her immense interest in and knowledge of Norwegian folk-music, singer Kirsten Bråten Berg from Setesdal in Norway is one of the key figures in Norwegian vocal music tradition. She is renowned for her Norwegian ‘kveding’ (unaccompanied singing) and for her love of placing old music traditions in new contexts, for example through her collaboration with jazz musician Arild Andersen. Kirsten Bråten Berg has participated in many festivals and has also won a host of awards and distinctions. She has won the Spellemannsprisen award several times and received the top medal in the Landskappleiken as far back as 1987. In the mid-1990s she teamed up with two West African musicians to produce the album From Senegal to Setesdal. The music is unmistakably Norwegian, yet the African tones blend in well and bear witness to the boundary-breaking forces of folk-music. Over the years she has toured frequently and in addition to her many concerts in her home country she has also performed in New York and London, as well as in Mozambique, South Africa, Brazil, Italy and Germany.
