Björk is an Icelandic singer with her own peculiar musical universe. She makes her first recordings – music for children – at the age of 12 and continues as lead-singer in various Icelandic groups, in particular Tappi Tikarrass in 1982-1986 and The Sugarcubes in 1987-1991. The latter becomes popular on the British post-punk scene with 4 LPs and 17 singles.  Björk then launches her solo-career with original trip-hop and alternative rock music, achieving mass-success with her 3 LPs ‘Debut’ (1992), ‘Post’ (1993) and ‘Homogenic’ (1997). As from her LP ‘Vespertine’ (2001), she evolves into more esoteric and experimental folk music, composing several film soundtracks and releasing 5 more albums in 2004-2017.
