Nordic Folk (yes, it's a genre)

As I have posted a few times now, we have the premiere of Othello tonight. But instead of posting more about the ballet, I figured I'd shake things up a little and bring to light a Danish band called Afenginn.
Introduced to me by a friend, this Danish band is playing for Cross Connection Ballet Company's summer program. I'm a big fan of CCBC (and not just because I'm friends with its directors, Royal Danish dancers Constantine Baecher and Cedric Lambrette); and now, a big fan of this weird little band. According to Wikipedia, Afenginn plays "high energy Nordic folk." I don't know what Nordic folk is, but I do know that Afenginn is fun and quirky and excellent music to bike to.
