about

This album is about resonance: on "Saman", which means "Together", Hildur melts her voice with her cello, connecting the two instruments together. The result is a highly involving and moving album, recorded, mixed and mastered in Berlin. Hildur’s sylph-like vocals contrast beautifully with rich cello tones, resolving the tension between light and dark to produce a unique listening experience.

Renowned bassist Skúli Sverrisson guests on “Heima”.

This is Hildur’s 4th album for Touch, after “Without Sinking”, “Mount A” and "Leyfðu Ljósinu”.
