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. 

Hurv efter Bork Julius

Here's quite a different take on a 'Hurv' from the Denmark duo, "Jærv".

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 like the Jaerv Hurv--so unusual.  Seems to have some Middle Eastern sound mixed into the Scandi character.

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.

@SharonC -

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. 😕
