ORKA – Aldan Reyð by Heiðrik á Heygum


A Faroese music video handpicked by Vimeo Staff to be one of “the videos we really, really love”. The grey people here are the mythical “huldufólk” (‘hidden people’), who according to Faroese folklore live in big rocks and mounds around the islands. “Orka” is the band’s name, song title “Aldan Reyð” translates to ‘the red wave’. Director Heiðrik á Heygum made that tribute to his swimming granny that I posted here in August. Don’t count on the ‘hidden people’ to save you if you drown.
