World Cafe's week-long series Sense of Place: Iceland draws to a close with an unexpected treat. We'd been in Reykjavik for a few days when we learned that June 17 would mark a daylong celebration of Icelandic National Day, the anniversary of Iceland's independence from Denmark in 1944. Events planned for the holiday ranged from outdoor chess matches to accordion concerts, culminating in a free outdoor show for an audience expected to hit 10,000.

Five Essential Icelandic Albums From World Cafe

12 Tónar Records.
John Vettese WXPN

On World Cafe's Sense of Place: Iceland trip, we felt inspired during our visit to Reykjavik's famed 12 Tónar Records. It's a homey, welcoming place where the shelves are filled with Icelandic CDs and vinyl.

Behind the counter, fielding all questions, was Einar Þór Kristjánsson, who has worked at 12 Tónar since it opened 15 years ago. We asked him to make a list of some of his favorite Icelandic music; he obliged, giving us the history of the unique store and picking five bands. (Some you may know well, others not so much.)

As part of World Cafe's week-long Sense of Place series, we resurface this 2000 interview with Björk, recorded in conjunction with the release of Selmasongs. At the time, the singer had just starred in the Lars von Trier film Dancer in The Dark, in which she played the character of Selma. The film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, where Björk also won the award for Best Actress.
