I've got very little information about a folk song, possibly traditional, in some Germanic language. But I'd really love to hear it again!
I'm a little worried that this can't be answered since I have so little to go on, but I just love this song and want to hear it again.
I will try to tell you as much as I can about this song, which it is not much:
It's a folk song, recorded anywhere between 1960 through the present, but it isn't a modern song. So no Mumford & Sons. It's entirely in another language than English. My guess would be possibly nordic/scandinavian, and definitely germanic. Maybe Icelandic? I don't know.
It begins with a short intro that is simply a flute or pan pipe sounding instrument. And then it goes into a male vocalist singing. It has a very "warm" feel, and there are possibly strings. But again, I'm not certain.
It sounds more traditional folk than anything modern, and I wouldn't be surprised if it has been around for a while.
Just as another data point, I've only ever heard it on a mixtape made for me by a friend who is very into all kinds of folk music and scandinavian culture. Just to give more context because this is so vague, other songs on the mix included Apple Tree Wassail (again, not sure which version), the Pentagle version of Willy O Winsbury
, and The Minotaur's Song by The Incredible String Band
. Sadly, the mix tape was lost, and I'm no longer in touch with the friend who made it.
is a "doot-do" of what I remember of the male vocal part.
Any help is appreciated, thank you!
