Culture Shock – Denmark
Written by english on 11 novembre 2019
Culture Shock is a new series that we have launched on Euradio. Each week we take one European country and put it under the spotlight, looking at its musical and cultural outputs. Each day there are two instalments of the show; one looking at music, and the other at culture. This week we chose to visit Denmark to learn more about how it became a unified kingdom and the influence that the monarchy had on Danish culture.
To kick off this week of Danish culture, Bella took us right back to the 8th century, when Denmark first became a unified kingdom.
Katherine sought out to discover what kind of influence the monarchy had on the history of Danish music.
