If you had to associate folk music to a country I’m pretty sure you would pick USA, but a lot of talented musician from other countries grew up with the melodies of Dylan, Young, Cash… Guess what? Now they want to play this music too. So Folk around the World is a recurring feature to make you travel while listening to some amazing artists.
Second stop: Denmark
Agnes Obel is a Danish songwriter currently living in Berlin. She started playing the piano really young and became a great musician influenced by Chopin, Joni Mitchell, PJ Harvey… Her music is pure, with very few instruments and very atmospheric. If she is playing close to your house you really need to go see her. You won’t regret it. Everything around you will become insignificant. It will be just Agnes, her piano and her beautiful voice.
