Icelandic composer Ólöf Arnalds translates her country's rugged landscape into ethereal songs performed on guitars, violins and even the charango, a South American string instrument. After making a splash with her album "Innundir Skinni," featuring backing vocals by Bjork, Arnalds has released an EP of covers from artists such as Neil Diamond, Caetano Veloso and Bruce Springsteen, called "Ólöf Sings." She joins us to perform live in our studio.
