The Ensemble

GLAS Vocal Ensemble is a Nordic acapella group, singing folk music from the Nordic and Balkan countries. The ensemble consists of six distinct female voices, and the singers have their roots in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Hungary and Poland. GLAS Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2001.

For their latest release, MOLD (meaning earth or soil in the Scandinavian languages) the group has cooperated with five of the most renowned Nordic contemporary folk composers: Mats Eden (SE), Henrik Ødegaard (NO), Emmi Kujanpää (FI), Pauli í Sandagerdi (FO) og Arne Dich (DK). The composers have written new arrangements of old Nordic folk songs especially for GLAS Vocal Ensemble. MOLD unites five languages and unique regional musicalities in a single homage to Nordic folk music. These compositions contain a wide range of experimental vocal expressions and timbres and has thus defined a new progressive direction in Nordic Folksong.

The unique sound of GLAS Vocal Ensemble has earned them cooperations with some of the most respected Nordic artists, as well as support from a multitude of funds, including the national councils for the arts of the Nordic
nations.
