Kulning (pronounced just as it looks) is a Swedish term that describes a unique form of singing used by Scandinavian herding girls who live in the high mountains with the dairy cattle during the spring and summer months. Think Heidi.
Families would traditionally have their own signature songs that were recognized by their herds. Wouldn’t it feel amazing to be in a beautiful setting with only your cows and belt out the sound of kulning? I’m game. How about you?
Here are a couple more kulning renditions:
Reminds me of the sounds of some of the old celtic chants used in the highlands of Britain. Lovely, and I bet the cows really respond to this music as well.
Very lovely sounding. I really enjoyed listening to the videos. I found them very calming and enjoyable to listen to. They remind me of a perfect nap time music for little ones.
Since I have never lived on a farm or experienced isolation , I have a hard time imagining such an experience and how the song would bring me a greater sense of peace and belonging. It is quite creative!
Amazing! I would almost be afraid to make my cow dry up!! Such POWER in these voices!!
Amazing! A song/sound I never would have heard without you, MJ
