The Norwegian musician Einar Selvik, also known as Kvitrafn, is, among other things, the lead singer of Wardruna, and his music comes from a deep understanding of Scandinavian folklore. Scandinavian myths, runes and being attuned to nature are motifs that often appear in his music. Wardruna is also responsible for part of the soundtrack to Vikings, and Kvitrafn himself plays in the series. Einar Selvik is also a respected ethnomusicologist. He lectures about his work on resuscitating the old music of the Vikings and hand-made instruments from natural materials at universities all around the world.
