Björk & Sigur Rós Celebrate Nature this coming Saturday in Iceland.
These words below where Björk's introduction to the Náttúra project:
"I would like to point out Iceland's uniqueness : Iceland and
its pure untouched nature are synonymous. If that is lost our
uniqueness is lost. Just as if Paris lost its fashion, New
York lost its skyscrapers, Los Angeles its Hollywood.
Our politicians must not get away with working against nature. We have
to keep them on their toes. The damage could be too great, much
greater than the short term profit.
The whole nation, in the cities and in the country-side, has awakened.
Much has been achieved in the last few years.The invisible nature-
lovers have become visible, visible and vocal. People all over
the country want to be heard, both in words and deeds.
The 21st century has started with vigourous Icelanders from all around
the whale museum Húsavík, Blue Lagoon, CCP, Icelandic musicians,
Villimey, Vogafjós, Hvíldarklettur, Magic Place Strandir,
A lot has happened and we have reached a new point.
I hope this concert will encourage thought on what comes next
That the Icelander will (keep on rising and) carry on forward with new
With creative thought adjusting to he ever changing mood of the world
- and Iceland.
in beat with the 21st century
in beat with nature
in beat with him self."
