Hailing from the harsh western fjords, Icelandic troubadour Svavar Knútur, summons his inner demons and outer storms to reflect upon the existential crises and frolicking joys of modern day rustic fjord dwelling men. Channeling the pain and angst of long dark winters and the insomnia of the 24 hour glaring summer sun, this eclectic musician has in recent years blossomed into a serene and sublime singer and songwriter. His songs of misery and redemption deliver a healthy dose of hope in the midst of despair. Svavar Knútur is the driving force of Melodica Festival Reykjavík.
