RÚV English Radio


Today, RÚV English is in Siglufjörður, with music journalist Lydia Athanasopoulou.

As we examine and celebrate Icelandic music genre by genre, today we reach the arrival of the electric guitar in the Icelandic music scene. This is the point at which things sound identifiably like rock'n'roll, and then start spinning off into lots of other areas. Lydia and Darren discuss how that development sounded in Iceland, with some great music along the way.
