Her voice is somewhat reminiscent of fellow Icelander Bjork's powerful dulcet tones. (There must be something in the water in Iceland). In fact, Bjork was originally asked to sing Gollum's Song but she turned down the offer because she was pregnant and so Emiliana Torrini replaced her. She's also produced some other great music as a solo artist and with the the band GusGus. This is one of her first singles, Jungle Drum, in 2009. I challenge you to try and impersonate the jungle noise she makes.
Her Italian sounding surname comes from her Italian father but she grew up in Iceland and trained at opera school there. After playing a session of gigs in London, Torrini decided to stay and live there. She's produced a string of albums but her most noted are Love in the Time of Science and Fisherman's Woman.
I guess her voice is quite versatile but she has a very delicate, cute sound, a little more easy listening than Bjork. She's adorable.
