Alexander’s violin version of Jamala’s ESC winner song “1944”.

Alexander Rybak’s  beautiful violin version of the 2016 Eurovision winner song “1944” by Jamala.

Alexander’s violin version of “1944” was meant to be performed at an ESC event during Eurovision in Kiev May  2017. An event where the invited artists would perform their version of an Ukrainian song. Unfortunately the event was canceled only a few weeks before it was going to happen. 

Luckily we can enjoy this beautiful violin version of “1944” on YouTube

 Translation by Sonya L. Revision by Katie A.

I decided a long time ago that I’ll never fall in love again
But then you appeared, my kitten-kitten-kitten-kitten
I was independent, but now it’s so boring without you
You break my heart, you play with my soul

And I don’t mind, let people laugh at me
But as soon as I fall asleep, my bunny-bunny-bunny
You’re right here, and I grow wings on my back
And flying above  the ground, I’m dreaming only about one thing

When Alexander Rybak was going to shoot his biggest music video so far for the single “Into A Fantasy”, he was never in any doubt about where. Namely at Vestkapp at Stad in Selje municipality.

– Everytime I am in this natural environment, I come up with something new and write new music,- says Rybak.

For example the Eurovision hit “Fairytale” was made when he visited Ålesund, and the song he won the “Kjempesjansen” with, was also written only a stones throw from Vestkapp.

– It’s a 100 percent beautiful nature here, with changing weather, soft beaches, deep valleys and exposed mountain tops. It’s something that awakens the versatility in me, says Rybak enthusiastically.

At the harsh Stadplatået there is for once no wind. The sky is blue and it is a clear view to Svinøy Lighthouse and south to Bremanger.

  – “It is disgusting to wear clothes in the shower!. I wanted to make an artistic video”-  Alexander Rybak says about his new music video

Was only meant to be watched in Russia: ESC-winner takes off his clothes in video.

It was actually only meant for the russian and eastern-european audience. But the new music video with an undressed Alexander Rybak has – of course – ended up on Youtube and goes around the world now.

– “It is only for the russian market. And I think, there are many who don´t speak russian, who will frown and think
” What is this”? –  the norwegian singer and violinist says, who became a world-star, when he won the International Eurovision Final in 2009 to VG Nett.

While filming at the roof the winner of “Eurovision-2009” got tested his fear of hight. Photo by Dmitry Nikonorov.

The winner of “Eurovision-2009” has come to unite hearts and destinies.

Women’s favorite Alexander Rybak worked the whole weekend – he was shooting video for the song “The Arrow of Cupid.” For this purpose he came especially from Oslo to Kiev for one day.

On Sunday traffic jams emerged in the city now and then: it was curious motorists, passersby and fans surrounded the places for shooting. And considering that there were several locations of new video’s shooting and a film crew traveled all over the city, unexpected congestions occurred across all over the Ukrainian capital.

Rybak himself, paying attention to nobody, was occupied with sweat with love affairs . In the plot of the video the artist is a Cupid who appears from nowhere and does everything possible to make lovers find each other, and tell each other the important words. At the same time the Cupid himself is invisible and alone. To make the image complete the video director Alexander Filatovich put angel wings on Alexander and even forced him to sing while standing on the roof of the hotel “Riviera on Podol”. By the way, the building’s administration didn’t like such an idea – safety first. So the film crew had to take full responsibility in case if anything would happen. Fortunately the shooting on the attic went without any incidents.

– I like the idea of the video, at the same time we have a very small budget, – the artist admitted. – I do not need multi-million dollar special effects. Much more pleasant to shoot a video with an interesting storyline and the best team.

How many couples will Amur-Rybak make, and will he find his soul mate – viewers will see that very soon.
