While it was raining we visited the Nordic House and assisted to a fantastic concert of Kata, a Faroe group of five women singing traditional songs. The concert was great and the building is a fine piece of modern architecture.

I attended a conference held at the Nordic House. As conference centers go, this one is comfortable and quite Scandinavian with modern furniture and a grass roof. A nice place for a meeting.
