ta:lik`s main aim is to make Norwegian traditional music available on CD. We specialize in quality releases of archive recordings by old master fiddlers, but we have also released new recordings ;with several of the best folk musicians in Norway. In Norway, traditional music is often linked to National Romanticism and its visual esthetics; including traditional costumes, rose painting and so on. Through contemporary cover designs we want to state that traditional music belongs to the present as well as the past, and does not always have to be paired with so-called traditional esthetics. ta:lik is initiated and run by Niels J. Røine, Anders E. Røine, Frode Rolandsgard and Tore Bolstad, all four closely connected to Valdres.
ta:lik was founded in 1999. The entire catalog counts more than 150 titles.
