We had an amazing weekend at the Urkult Music Festival at the Namforsen rock carvings in Nasaker, Sweden. Urkult is a three-day festival in the forest, by the river, at a location that has over 1,000 stone age rock carvings, indicating that this site has been considered sacred for several thousand years. The festival features “Eldnatten” or “Night of Fire,” a big theatrical production with a lot of fire and fire-dancing. We heard many great performances at Urkult including Pussy Riot, Maija Kauhanen, Mari Boine, Kroke and Urna, and the Bauls of Bengal. We had lovely weather for most of the festival, however, it rained a bit on Saturday afternoon, when I got to perform. I was amazed at how many people came out and stood in the rain to listen.
