Digelius Nordic Gallery




  • North Side records of USA has licensed numerous Nordic CDs for the North American market including some exclusive compilations and most titles with new packaging. They're crazy about the stuff and would love to hear from you. 
  • ECM Records has, of course, published many excellent and groundbreaking recordings from Scandinavia over the years. Artists such as Edward Vesala, Jan Garbarek, Arild Andersen, Bengt Berger and others are well represented, not to mention newcomers like Krakatau and Nordan. ECM has excellent distribution worldwide so it makes sense to buy their products directly from them, if possible. The U.S. office of ECM has a www site where interested parties (within USA) can go directly for information and purchases. They do not sell outside of U.S. but they do provide a wealth of information for everyone worldwide.
