Live Video: Emilíana Torrini

We’ve packed the house at Kex Hostel during our broadcasts during Iceland Airwaves over the last few years, but no session was filled with as many fervent Icelandic fans as the performance by Emilíana Torrini. The Iceland native (her father is Italian, if you’re wondering about her name) grew up in Reykjavik but made a name for herself in England. Her recent, sixth album, Tookah, followed big changes in her life, particularly the birth of her son, and led to a move back home. Never far from their hearts, she was now close to her countrymen’s eyes and ears, and they pressed together to hear the elegant sound of her voice as she and her band performed a handful of songs from Tookah. You can read more about her stunning homecoming performance here and watch the videos for yourself here:
