Radio in icelandic language

Icelandic is the official language of Iceland, spoken by the majority of the country's population. It belongs to the Nordic branch of the Germanic languages and is most closely related to Faroese and Norwegian. Icelandic is known for its complex grammar and conservative spelling system, which has remained largely unchanged since the 12th century.

In the Icelandic music scene, there are many popular artists who sing in the language. Some of the most well-known include Björk, Sigur Rós, Of Monsters and Men, and Ásgeir. These musicians have gained international recognition and have helped to popularize Icelandic music around the world.

There are several radio stations that broadcast in Icelandic. The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV) operates several stations, including Rás 1 and Rás 2, which offer news, current affairs, and a variety of music programs. Other stations that play Icelandic music include X-ið 977 and FM 957. These stations play a mix of contemporary and traditional Icelandic music, and provide a platform for local musicians to share their work with a wider audience.
