The Taste of Iceland festival took place in Toronto from 2-5. December and was full of free events. Hundreds of Torontoians came out to brave the cold this weekend and immerse themselves in Icelandic music, literature, dance, ice skating and more! Some even won a trip to Iceland for two!

Every year a film screening and the concert, Reykjavik Calling can be expected, but this year there were lots of new exciting events! I had the pleasure of attending Elemental Sound Bath, which was an amazing experience! I would call myself an experienced sound bath participant, but this bath was very unique. The elements were used as the focus sounds, which is VERY appropriate for Iceland! During my time in Iceland, I was constantly stunned by the sheer beauty of rolling mountains to glaciers, volcanoes, guizers and waterfalls. You really experience the four elements on an amplified scale in Iceland, and this sound bath translated it very well.

The Torontonians were blessed with music from Hermigervill, a multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer and active part of the Reykjavík DJ scene while skating at the Harbourfront Center Rink! On Sunday, participants in the author’s discussion for the Christmas book avalanche received the book “On Time and Water” by the Icelandic author and filmmaker Andri Snær Magnason!
