Music matters. Across decades and centuries, music is one of the rare things that transcend through time and space. Árstíðir, an Icelandic indie-folk group walked into a resonant space in a train station of Wuppertal, Germany, and started singing Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson’s adaptation of ‘Heyr himna smiður’, a hymn written in 1208.
