Hjemve - Vocal Folk Music From Folldal
"In this project, I wanted to convey the fantastic vocal folk music in Folldal. I think this music is important in many ways, and I hope me and my voice have added something new to this music", says Plassen.
Growing up in Folldal, Synnove has always been exposed to instrumental folk music. As a singer, she liked to imitate what the fiddlers were playing. Synnove discovered the local tradition of dance music performed vocally as an adult and became taken by the tradition. After some research, several examples of instrumental folk tunes being performed vocally in the past emerged, it also turned out that many musicians had learned to play the fiddle by listening to singers. For example, her great-grandfather, Mikael Plassen (1902-1996), was a fiddler in Folldal who learned tunes after his mother's singing.
Synnove Brondbo Plassen is a Norwegian folk musician, singer, educator, and is currently taking a master´s degree in music performance of folk music at the Norwegian Academy of Music. She has mostly worked with traditional music from Folldal, Osterdalen and Trondelag. Her repertoire ranges from children's songs and psalms to ballads and instrumental music performed vocally. In addition to receiving a number of other talent scholarships and awards, in 2019 she was chosen as the Hilmar talent, which is a national talent award for folk musicians and folk dancers. She has been described as one of the greatest young folk music talents, and is a versatile folk singer through her dissemination of both traditional folk music, arranged folk music, and newly composed music. She has been touring with Bendik Smedasgjelten Qvam on guitars and mandolin.
