New for Rybak

Alexander Rybak appreciated to be incorporated into the event, and praised Risør and the city’s audience.

– I don’t understand why I haven’t been here before, because this is a real pearl. It’s fun that Iam invited to these kind of arrangements. I’m used to my concerts and my music, but this is more like a festival, and I think the audience enjoyed listening,- Rybak said to Aust Agder Blad after the concert.

Now he is looking forward to the recording of TV2’s “Hver Ggang vi møtes “, where he and Lars Lillo-Stenberg will participate.
– I look forward to taking a little deep dive into Norwegian music history. But I am from Belarus, and during the first years I was in Norway, I had buddies who played a new song by deLillos for me every day. So I’m looking forward to play more with Lars Lillo in “Hver gang vi møtes “.

At the final Alexander Rybak joined deLillos on stage. Both him and Lars Lilo-Stenberg take part in TV2’s next season of “Hver gang vi møtes”
