Bláskjár is the alter ego and solo project of the Icelandic composer and musician, Dísa Hreiðarsdóttir. Bláskjár´s music is a mixture of neo-classical and electronic folk music where storytelling plays a big role. Bláskjár focuses on playing humble and lyrical music, straight from the heart, using soundscapes from the nature and electronic beats to twist things up a little.
