At the Nordic Harp Meeting 2017 in Viljandi, Niss is going to teach two workshops again with a similar scope towards what was so popular last year:
- Indian Healing Music
- Danish Music.
Storyteller, harper and composer, Niss Stricker is on a never ending musical journey. His roots are planted in the Scandinavian music, but the branches bear fruit from all the corners of the world. Music has no boundaries, and so it is with the inspiration in Niss Stricker’s music. With extensive studies in Indian music, Scandinavian ballad singing and Gregorian chant, Niss Stricker is always searching for the common human heritage in the music.
His harp studies began in France and since returning to his home country he has given many concerts both at home and abroad. The concerts are a mix of storytelling and world music. He is a recording artist with three albums of his own music in his catalog and a prolific Danish songwriter. Music gives wing to the soul, it is a way of urging the spirit soar above mundane worries. All that can be found in a melody.
