A Little Fjord Music

Part of Iceland’s problem with overtourism is that too few tourists take the time to visit the beautiful East of the country. I always try to see the “real” Iceland by driving to some of the little waterfront towns like the village of Fáskrúðsfjörður in the East Fjords. With only 662 residents, the peaceful settlement recently gathered the entire population by the harbor  to watch Italian pianist and composer Costantino Carrara, 22, as his music video, featuring an arrangement of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” was being recorded.  Carrara is among a new generation of musicians, who strive to reach an audience through social media, rather than by selling CDs or giving concerts. Enjoy the show and the scenery.
