Celebrating our great pagan legacy

Biography


Sowulo creates modern day Viking Folk-music, inspired by pagan culture. Their ritual music will take you on a inner journey. Their acoustic music will let you celebrate our great pagan legacy. The aim of this musical project is to create deeper awareness of our spiritual heritage. This is brought forth by beautiful ambient conceptual music, and by the opening ritual at the start of Sowulo's concerts.

Sowulo’s first album, Alvenrad, was built upon the pagan year feasts, expressing the four seasons in music. The follow-up, SOL, is an acoustic album which contains a tasteful blend of new and old material, recorded with acoustic instruments exclusively. Again, the main theme of this album are the cycles that are created by our beloved Sun. However, the songs on this album are more earthly and uptempo.

Be sure to take a listen to this exceptional music.
