Alexander Rybak Performs at Victoriadagen: A fan report

A Royal Fairytale performance: Borgholm, Sweden 14/7/2018

 NIELS PEETERS REPORTING

Borgholm is a beautiful small Swedish city on the island of Öland in the Baltic Sea.
It’s a nice place to visit. With the houses and the nature, you really feel like  you are in an Astrid Lindgren movie. It is one of the most popular summer resorts in Sweden. The Swedish Royal Family’s official summer Palace can be found just a couple of kilometres outside the city centre.

This year we travelled to Sweden for our summer holidays, and were able to visit Borgholm on 14th July to attend the Victoriadagen. Victoriadagen is an annual event on the island and is a tribute to the Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday. This year’s celebration was extra special for me because Alexander Rybak was one of the seven artists invited to take part in the 2018 concert.

Arad Aria Feat. Alexander Rybak – “Bade To” with lyrics

Alexander Rybak featuring Arad Aria in the song “Bade To”  (After You).

Alexander Rybak and Arad Aria (Iranian singer, composer and producer) have collaborated and released the new beautiful song in Farsi called “Bade To”, which translates to “After You”. 

Although this music video was actually ready 16 months ago, Arad had to wait for the release licence in Iran, hence the delay. The wait was well worth it, however, as the two artists have provided us with a beautiful piece of art in which Arad sings and illustrates the heartbreak one feels after being abandoned by their love, and Alexander plays the elegant melody on the violin.  Continue reading Arad Aria Feat.

Any day now, the first rehearsals of the Eurovision Song Contest-2018 will start in Lisbon. The current theme of the musical “Olympics” “All Aboard” symbolises not only the completion of the nightmare for the organisers because of last year’s squabbles around the “Crimean greetings in a wheelchair” from Russia, which led to a boycott by the very same Russia of the contest in Kiev, but it has other, more pleasant meanings: for example, a record number of countries – 43 –, including the same Russia with the same Julia Samoylova, who will finally realise her pink dream of participating in the contest, as well as the presence of extremely iconic characters of the Eurovision circus. One of these cherries on the cake was the appearance of the famous Norwegian-Belarusian Alexander Rybak among the contestants.

Alexander Rybak at the “Victoriadagen” concert 14.07.2018

Alexander Rybak performed at the “Victoriadagen” concert.

“Victoriadagen” (The Victoria Day)  is a tribute to Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday. The celebrations usually take place on the island of Öland, where the Swedish Royal family spends their summer holiday. This year Alexander was one of the artists who performed at the concert for the Crown Princess. 

Here is a playlist of Alexander’s performances, “Fattig Bonddräng” together with Kalle Moreaus, “Jealous” and “Song From a Secret Garden”. 

Alexander also gave a short interview to the “Victoriadagen” Magazine.

How does it feel to perform in Sweden again and this time even for the Swedish Royal Family?

-What I like the most in life is to travel and play together with other people. And finally get to play at Øland (Sweden) for the Crown Princess together with great Swedish artists, is in fact a dream that came true. 

-Some Swedes may remember me from the TV-show “Let’s Dance”, but most of my career has not been about dance but about violin play. I am still practising 3-4 hours per day to develop my talent.

What other career plans do you have in addition to perform at the “Victoriadagen”?

-In Norway it is soon the premier of my own musical, which is based on my children’s book “Trolle”. I like to work with children and have had the pleasure to take part in several music seminars in Sweden, where I have tried to inspire children and show them new ways of playing and experience music genres.

Tell us about your new song.

-My latest song I have called “Mamma” (Mom), because it is written for my Mom, but I’m not sure if that is the right song for the Crown Princess’s birthday. I will perform something special for both the Crown Princess and the audience in Borgholm.

One who already has been inspired by Grieg to make new music is the “Kjempesjansen” -winner Alexander Rybak from Nesodden. He won the talent competition on NRK with self-made music where he both sang and played violin. The song he performed seemed more influenced by American music than the essence of Norway, but Alexander tells that through the years he has been inspired by a lot of different music, including Grieg.
