Hosts Dick and Dean are joined in the studio tonight by 3 Danes and an Icelander: Krauka. These outstanding individual musicians make up a quartet which draws on ancient themes and traditions as inspiration for a musical quest into a realm of artistic expression which echoes folk, classical, jazz and ambient sound. Tonight we hear from them individually in the studio and as a group in selections from their latest CD release Odinn.
