Songs from North & South is a trip that connects the Mediterranean with the North Sea. Through the songs subtle bridges are established where a Catalan song and a Norwegian tune meet rhythms and aspects in common, such as a Norwegian romance and a Sephardic song share the same hue, or as a Catalan romance already speaks of a love between a maiden from the Mediterranean and a gentleman from the north. They will be the numerous trips that the Vikings, the Catalans, the Scots and the Sephardim made that created invisible bridges but that thanks to music can be felt and have been witness to this conductive thread between the south and the north.
A program where two voices, a Norwegian violin and harps pose for poetry and music that sings to love and the mystery of life. Old and modern songs are embraced in the present, and, the ancestral tradition of explaining a singing story with the harp, takes a new path between north and south in the hands of Arianna Savall and Petter U. Johansen.
