Vàli is one of the best-kept secrets among lovers of nature-related acoustic music. The Norwegian one-man project's debut album, "Forlatt," was already released back in 2004 in a limited edition that was quickly sold out.
Now, finally, their eagerly anticipated sophomore "Skogslandskap" (english: "Wooded Landscape") is ready for release. "Skogslandskap" seamlessly picks up where "Forlatt" left off, enchanting you with its timeless simplicity and elegance. Fragile compositions for acoustic guitars are still very much at the centre of Vàli's music. These are augmented by yearning string arrangements, pastoral flute melodies, and accentuated piano sounds.
