Lesson 9: Sweden

This week we continue our jaunt up north with a musical visit to Sweden, which shares much language and culture with the other Scandinavian nations–Denmark and Norway. This week we also dabble in some music and dancing from Finland, which has more in common linguistically and culturally with its eastern neighbors in Russia and Estonia.

MUSIC: Swedish musicians are pretty at performing old-time Scandinavian folk songs, but are GREAT at performing modern pop.

MIDSUMMER: Celebrating the summer solstice the Swedish way.
