Having started as a folk-rock band in a remote Siberian province, Nytt Land required less than a year to become one of the most prominent and successful Russian folk projects. Focused on ancient Scandinavia, the band rapidly evolved into an authentic music ensemble, thorough yet in the same time innovative. Their music is mostly based on the sources from Poetic Edda, performed on the original Old Islandic. Both male and female voices are used with regards to reflecting the old vocal techniques.


Notably outstanding on the Russian scene and largely compared with the legendary Wardruna, Nytt Land are unique in their devotion to the ritual Northern music and tradition that comes along with a great talent. Their almost reenacting approach, genuine native hand-crafted instruments and colossal enthusiasm help them to grasp the true spirit of ancient Northern music like no one in Eastern Europe has done before.
