icelandic folk music

Icelandic music has a very long tradition, with some songs still sung today dating from 14th century. Iceland's isolation meant that, until the 19th century, foreign influences were virtually absent, which resulted in the maintenance of a particular rhythm, called hákveða, lost in other Nordic countries and considered one of the main characteristics of Icelandic folk music.


Icelanders are very musical people and most people learn to play some instrument. Icelandic pop music is known worldwide, singer like Björk, bands like Sigurros, Sugarcubes and a recent example Of Monsters and Man.
