GEILO, Norway (NBC/MUSTASCH MEDIA VIA RTV) — An ice music festival in Norway is making some cool sounds.
The festival, happening in this Norwegian mountain town and now in its ninth year, celebrates water and nature with a full set of ice sculpted instruments.
Everything from decorations to the stage and instruments are made of nature’s own frozen water.
Organizers say the festival is an ovation to nature and the world’s most important resource: water.
This year’s festival saw artists from Norway, Sweden and Estonia,and they performed on ice cellos, ice harps, ice horns and ice drums. The world’s first ice brass band was even created.
Feedback from thousands of visitors was very positive, and organizers have already started planning for next year’s festival.
