The Basement Tapes of Sigríður Níelsdóttir
“At the tender age of 70 she started recording and releasing her own music straight from the living room. 7 years later Sigríður Níelsdóttir had 59 albums to her name with more than 600 songs – an eccentric myriad of catchy compositions mixing in her pets’ purrs and coos, found toys, kitchen percussion and casio keyboards.

‘Grandma Lo-fi’ is a cinematic tribute to an amazing musician and her boundless creativity.”
