Den Udødelige Sømand
Thanks SO MUCH to everyone that contributed to our crowdfunder! We look forward to recording as soon as we can and we will keep you updated on progress.
Den Udødelige Sømand (The Immortal Sailor) centres on the intriguing life of Christian Drakenberg, a certain Norwegian sailor who supposedly lived to the grand old age of 145 years and died in Århus in 1744. Following his impossibly long lifetime and beyond, this collection of 7 songs - written in Danish - explores the power of imagination, the downfalls of pride and the addictive lure of self-mythology. Prepare for a beguiling adventure through time that delves between soundworlds old and new...
