Wardruna is a Norwegian music constellation dedicated to create musical renditions of the Norse cultural and esoteric traditions. With the use of the oldest Nordic instruments and poetic metres as well as lyrics written in Norwegian, Norse and proto-Norse tongue, Wardruna sets out to give new voice to ancient and still relevant ideas and wisdom from the past.
Einar Selvik founded the group in 2002 and has ever since their public debut in 2009, patiently established themselves internationally as important communicators of Norse and Nordic cultural heritage. They are known for doing very few and special concerts, often in places that compliments their music, perhaps most notably when they performed in front of the majestic 1100-year-old Gokstad ship at the Viking Ship Museum in Norway. Over the years Einar Selvik and Wardruna have also gained a broad audience through their substantial musical involvement in History Channel’s hit series Vikings.
