rúnahild - digital album downloads on bandcamp
Eliwagar is a one-woman band that was created by Runahild in december 2006 and ended in 2016.
Through its 10 years of existence, several albums of heathen folk/ folk rock have been released. Some guest musicians - Bjørn Dahl, Roar Ruus Finsås and Wargnar - have joined her on some recordings and live performances from time to time.
The main source of inspiration of Eliwagar is the norse spirituality and the ancient land of Hyperborea - the land beyond the northern wind.

There were 6 months of summer when the sun would never sets down, giving good and abundant harvests, and 6 months of winter when the northern lights were dancing in the northern sky.
Runahild felt a strong connection to this mystical land. She wished to revive its spirit through her music, to remind how we are connected to nature, how we are within nature and nature within us and that our beautiful earth already bears all the gifts and all that we need if we just remember how to live in harmony with her and with each other...
