A musical festival of light
Since the dawn of mankind, the sun has been a divine symbol of life force. Feasts and rituals in honour of its light are an integral part of every annual calendar worldwide.
With Winter Solstice, Hathor Consort explores the deep darkness of the far north, revealing enchanting folklore and mythology from Sweden to India. Immerse yourself in the melodies and tunes of different cultures weaving tales of winter, mythical creatures and the transition from darkness to light. As the winter solstice approaches, communities unite in celebration, with traditional music strengthening social bonds. Discover the cultural and symbolic connection between the solstice and ancient music from Scandinavia, Lithuania and England - a celebration of the eternal dance between darkness and light.
