The myths of the Norse come to life in Northern Seas, Al Conti’s GRAMMY® Nominated fourth album. As with his previous award-winning album, Scheherazade, Conti has taken well-known tales, this time from the mystical lands of the north that originated during Scandinavia’s Viking Age, and woven music around themes and images. By combining ancient and exotic instruments with modern ones, Conti has created a mythical landscape carrying the listener to another time and place, one cloaked in veils of mist, when the gods ruled over harsh Nordic lands. Alongside the GRAMMY® Nomination, the album also ranked Top 10 Best New Age on Amazon.com in 2010.
