Song of the Day Sunday Morning 1-13-19 Olafur Arnalds – saman

A quiet piece from Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds.  Saman is a Persian word meaning calm or solace.  Seems appropriate for a snowy Sunday morning here in the DC metro area.


Song of the Day 8/26/18 Olafur Arnalds re:member

Olafur Arnalds is an Icelandic composer and multi-instrumentalist.  I love how this song starts very contemplative, but then progresses to a more upbeat tone, as if to say its fine to ponder and consider, but at some point you need to get out and do.
