Hafdís Bjarnadóttir

Hafdís Bjarnadóttir is an Icelandic composer and electric guitarist who rose to fame in 2013 when she was inspired to compose “Thordis’ Fichu” by a knitting pattern for a lace scarf.

Hafdis Bjarnadóttir’s latest CD is Já (yes, in Icelandic)

Erica performs in Manudans, among others, with accordion and voice. On an irregular basis, Erica and Hafdís collaborate on new compositions or joint projects.

CD: Já – Hafdís Bjarnadóttir

Hafdis Bjarnadóttir’s latest CD is Já. That means Yes in Icelandic, pronounced “you,” and in many dialects it is pronounced as you inhale your breath, rather than exhale.

I have the honor of playing a few songs with them, including Manudans. We recorded this piece in her sister’s horse stable and it consists of her note material, her improvisation on guitar and my improvisation on accordion and voice.
