The Ballad of Homecoming
Sara Parkman

The folk musician Sara Parkman has received a lot of attention for her performances Fäboland and Sång till Välfärden (Song for the welfare system). Her album Matriarkerna (The Matriarchs), which she made together with Samantha Olanders, was named the release of the year and the Folk & World Music Gala in 2018.

Here she has scored David Väyrynen’s poem from Marken.
