Nordanlåt (pronounced noor-dan-lurt) is Melbourne’s premiere Scandinavian folk music band. The name means ‘tunes from the north’, as a play on the Swedish word ‘nordanvind’ meaning ‘wind from the north’. Featuring fiddles, recorder, guitar and vocals, Nordanlåt performs lively dance tunes such as polskas and schottises, and evocative melodies like lullabies, bridal marches and waltzes.
