Old legends tells about the forest nymph that fell in love with a human. In exchange for the love of her life and a future among the human race, she lost her tail, her ability to shape shift and her mountain family. Every time she was treated wrong she lost a little piece of her beauty, but her incredible strength and wisdom stayed strong. To this present time you can still find bloodlines related to this strong female nature creature called Huldra. 

This album is a tribute to Huldra and the strength we all carry inside, the power to create light, love and make dreams come true. As long as blood runs through our veins, the mind is free and we can take care of our sparkling child inside, dreams can be realised and the most incredible things materialised.
