Farvæl/Goodbye (Faroe Islands) by Dawn Florinda Wall

Farvæl is a Faroese song about grief. We have all felt grief and most of us have lost someone we care about.  When it hits, we often get paralyzed and have a hard time functioning.  The song “Farvæl” translates the words and the mood of grief into song  and with that it communicates what can be so hard to say, when we are faced with a loss. The music video compliments the song and tells the tale of a person going on the journey from the paralyzed state to slowly returning to her everyday life, despite having lost a loved one.

Running time: 00:02:55
