Markús & the Diversion Sessions Perform "Decent Times," "13th Floor," "The Truth The Love The Life," "Very Lightly," "Slow Boat" & "Picture A Painting"

Are these Icelanders guilty of Cultural Appropriation for singing in English? I don't know. I do know that I am in love with that Gretsch Electromatic Hollow Body! But is their using it not an appropriation of an American appropriation of a Spanish appropriation of an Arab instrument, the oud, which, according to Al-Farabi, was the invention of Lamech, the sixth grandson of Adam?

But seriously, how can a country with a third of the population of the Rochester, New York metropolitan area produce so much good music?
