This February and March, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. presents Nordic Cool 2013, a month-long international festival that asks “What is ‘Nordic’?” and celebrates the diversity of the Nordic region.

Thanks to this festival, Scandinavia House is afforded the exciting opportunity to present some of these thrilling musical acts in New York City.
