"All four Nordic countries"? I thought there were five Nordic countries. What about Iceland? Erik 14:32, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

I have some problems with the title of this page. It seems there is no English translation of the word spelman etc. The most widespread word in English text maybe is the Finnish pelimanni; "pelimanni music" yields 174 google hits. I suppose traditional Nordic dance music is unambiguous, but oh so boring... but if we shouldn't use Wikipedia to market newly invented terms, then maybe this is the best. / Habj 00:42, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Spelemann[edit]

The only correct spelling in Norwegian is "spelemann". Not "spellman" nor "speleman". Noruga 09:17, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Title Problems?[edit]

Writing here a few years later, I'll second the thought that the title of this article is problematic. I have been cruising around quite a number articles on related topics for several months and only today ran into this (very nice) one. Is there anyone available who is knowledgable about how searches work? I think adding "folk" would bring it closer to its audience, perhaps "Nordic Folkdance Music?"Plskmn 20:58, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
