    Asatru/Heathen/Nordic Music

    Someone messaged me about involved in a winter music show with a Nordic theme. They want to include something pagan-related, but the band told the choir director about Neo-Nazis appropriating Nordic symbols, and it made her back out on including any pieces. Are there any wintery songs or pieces, maybe traditional folklore songs, that have pagan themes and can't be twisted as neo-nazi propoganda. She suggested possibly something about Frigga.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I come to the rescue! (I think)







    ....that's a few I know of off the top of my head. Not those songs specifically, but check out those bands.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    No probs! I know lots of other pagan music, but that's all I could think of that could be stretched as nordic. (I think Faun is German, lol).

    I don't know if this will be of any use at all... But Valravn is a Danish band (well. Was. They broke up a few years ago) that sing danosh/faroese folk music. https://youtu.be/YaByV6JG2b4 this one is an old tale of a man who killed his brother for sleeping with his wife... we have lots of delightfully light hearted tales like that. https://youtu.be/SC5lyN4kAcY this is possibly the oldest written piece of music found in the world, given a modern interpretation. https://youtu.be/WMlUhLRaV5o and this is the story of a young man being seduced by elves, and if memory serves correct, dying from fatigue and longing. That's probably the most common theme in Nordic folklore.
