There are fewer than ten people in Iceland who regularly perform this style of singing in parallel fifths - called tvísöngur - and these two might be the only ones without classical music training, which means they sing it as it was previously sung, in the oral tradition. This polyphonic style of singing came over to Iceland with Christianity in the early Middle Ages, and remained in Iceland as an oral tradition of folk singing long after it left most other places in Europe, or melded with the classical tradition.
This style is unique in all the world.
Thank you Gustaf Danielsson and Örlygur Kristfinnsson for sharing your beautiful tradition with me!
