Faroese singer-songwriter Eivør has been named Icelandic Female Singer Of The Year. Her music features in Hollywood films, popular TV series and in 2018 video game God Of War.

Rachel Sermanni is an acclaimed Scottish folk musician. Sincere and refreshing, her songs incorporate characters from or inspired by her native Highlands.

Composer Paul Frith is a sought-after collaborator, having worked with giants including Radiohead, The xx and Bear’s Den. With Indian singer Deepa Nair Rasiya, Frith presents the extraordinary life of Ramanujan, a self-taught mathematician and probably one of the most gifted to have ever lived.
