Music for Blizzard Conditions

After a couple days of false starts, the big blizzard is finally here!

It's a balmy 16F (-9C) outside. There's not a lot of snow yet, but at least it's not turning to slush on arrival anymore. With any luck, by Saturday I'll be able to seriously play in the snow!

Until then here is some music to set the mood for skiing snowshoeing and snowball tossing.

Karoliina Kantelinen, the brilliant Finnish ethnomusicologist, performing "Ellös huolta huomisesta".

Solveig Andersson of Norway, Yoiking "bjiejjie"

The group Jarŋŋa from Northern Sweden performing "Jåvna vuolle"

The snow was just like slurpees over here yesterday. Now it's just plain freezing.

I can't wait to adorn my yard with snow creatures. Finally have my OWN yard this year, so it'll be crazy, for sure.

Dear Mushtaq,

Thank you very much for sharing all of this music! I particularly like Solveig Andersson of Norway, Yoiking "bjiejjie."

Best wishes,
