Airwaves – A world of beautiful music in intimate settings

The Airwaves festival brings some of the world's most creative music talent to Reykjavik where they perform in mostly very intimate settings where one can almost touch the music.
The Embassy honored a group of young American and Icelandic composers and performers including the incomparable Nico Muhly, Paul Corley, Sam Amidon, Nadia Sirota, Puzzle Muteson, Daniel Bjarnasson, and Ben Frost   These artists came to Iceland through the Bedroom Community record label/collective which was established by Valgeir Sigurðsson, a very accomplished composer himself and purveyor of beautiful music.  Mary and I attended most of their performances, cementing our admiration of their music.
