Have I got a treat for you!

Slinkombas was one of Norway's first folk bands. They released their self-titled debut album in 1979, for which they won Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy).

Their second album, ...og bas igjen, was released in 1982. Since then the members have had successfull solo careers. The singer Kirsten Bråten Berg is now recognised as one of Norway's greatest folk singers. Hallvard T. Bjørgum, who plays the eight-string Hardanger fiddle, is one of Norway's leading fiddlers.

These are my own rips, and they're not available elsewhere on the web, but the albums have recently been reissued on CD, so buy 'em if you like 'em! They are true classics of Norwegian folk.

Front cover artwork included. 192 kpbs MP3.

Oh My,
What can I say.... Magic Music, those Hardanger's, and the voices, total delight (I don't understand a word of the language) but the rhythm of the songs is pure poetry.

A very welcome addition to my meagre Norwegian collection.
Thanks.

I know this is rather unlikely, but is there any way you could re-up these? The sharebee links are still visible, but none of the links they distributed to are working.
