So, came across 'Hurv' tunes - Emelie Waldken explains:
"A hurv is a type of tune (mostly polska) which has one low-pitched and "rock" part, repetitive, a bit like a riff, and one higher-pitched part, more "delicate" or at least more melodic. Hurvs are found mostly in the border-area between Sweden and Norway, notably Särna in Älvdalen region."
Here's a 'Hurv' she composed - that I MUST learn! It's not only cross-tuned, but also tuned down! "Tuning C# F# C# G# (or DGDA at kindof A=415 Hz)"!
Ensamhurven (Alone polska) - in baroque tuning
Here's another 'Hurv' I like - by Mats Berglund, Göran Håkansson, Fredrik Lundberg & Anders Nordlöf.
Here's quite a different take on a 'Hurv' from the Denmark duo, "Jærv".
...more hidden gems. 😊
Might have found a fun 'Hurv' for Halloween!
Maybe 'Trick or Treat', or did the devil make them do it? 🤣 Performance by Nordic Wombat's Ingrid Wangel and Jesse McCormack.
I really liked that aspect of the 'Jærv' Hurv, too.
One thing is bothering me about all of these tunes.
Reading Emelie Waldken's definition, I expected to hear more of a distinctive - maybe a more dramatic, difference between the 'A' and 'B' parts?
I'm just not hearing what I thought she described - maybe my expectations were too high. 😕
