Composed by nature
Discover the island of Gotland through the songs and stories of Swedish musician, Amanda Bergman.
Amanda Bergman has been coming to Gotland since she was a child. This little white island provides the backup to so many of her childhood memories – from gravel scraped knees to a pounding teenage heart. Now, it seems Gotland has inspired her latest song, “Falcons”.
An island of inspiration
Music as a mirror
As well as inspiring musicians and filmmakers, Gotland has a strong connection to the world of literature. For many years writers have rented cottages here, which they use as both a source of inspiration and a place of solitude. To write a novel or compose a poem isn’t just about setting words on a page. It’s about the art of listening and observing the world around you, while having the patience and emotional tools at your disposal to realise your vision. For Amanda, Gotland provides all of these things and she uses songwriting as a way of discovering more about herself.
