Samsaya – “Europe Skies”

It was a playful evening in front of hundreds in the enthusiastic audience in Øksneshallen. It was almost “Beatles-conditions”, with a huge tribulation in front of the entrance. More chairs had to be put in place so as many as possible got the chance to see and hear. Continue reading Alexander in Øksnes with The LVO 29.09.13

И счастлив я пусть даже
Любовь – мгновение Continue reading Russian cover of “Funny Little World”
