Profile
Hedningarna ("The Heathens" in English) is a Swedish and, for some years partly Finnish, band that brings ancient Nordic music into the modern era. Their world is a place where primitive, brutal folk music collides with sampling and programming. The band was founded by Anders Norudde, Hållbus Totte Mattsson, and Björn Tollin in 1987. The band later added Finnish singers Sanna Kurki-Suonio and Tellu Paulasto.
