  • Sage Walker turned me on to strange neo-Norse revival stuff, and "kulning" is now a word in my vocabulary.


  • Jenny explained the term "kulning," which indeed means cattle call.


  • This album also lacks any of the jazzy interludes, kulning from one of the men in the band, no less, and the kind of edgy Swedish-style fiddle melodies that characterized much of HUR! and caused it to grab my attention.

  • Lothlórien is introduced with a bit of kulning, or very high-pitched female vocalizations developed by Swedish cattle herders, and Galadriel sings in a form of traditional Finnish lilting.

  • Wilhems also once again shows off her skill at kulning, a very high-pitched style of singing based on cow-calling, on "iVall @Ley".

    Gjallarhorn, Rimfaxe (Vindauga Music Ltd., 2006)

  • This piece breaks into a jazzy instrumental after the kulning, but Wilhems' kulning has been most effective when it's been stark and blunt, like in the "Kulning" piece that closes Gjallarhorn's previous album Grimborg, or the explosive ending to the song "Dejelil och Lagerman" off their 2000 sophomore effort Sjofn.

  • Jenny demonstrating her kulning voice was definitely one of the highlights of the festival.
