Danish storyteller, harper and composer Niss Stricker is on a never ending musical journey. With extensive studies in Indian music, Scandinavian ballad singing and Gregorian chant, Niss is always searching for the common human heritage in music.

His harp studies began in France and since returning to his home country he has given many concerts both at home and abroad. The concerts are a mix of storytelling, singing, and music. He is a recording artist with three albums of his own music in his catalog and a prolific Danish songwriter. Music gives wing to the soul, it is a way of urging the spirit soar above mundane worries. All that can be found in a melody.
