Kraumur music fund was established in 2008 Aurora Foundation in support of Icelandic music and artists – with special attention given to new and emerging talent. The fund operates on both local and on international level, cooperates with various bodies within Iceland’s music sector and annually grants the Kraumur Music Awards for the best albums being released in Iceland. This year the awards will be awarded for the fifteenth time!
