Alexander Rybak – “Old Maple” in the Ukrainian TV-show “Meeting Place” 01.11.2014.

Recording by Sveta Plyasun 

You can find the English translation of the song here

Alexander Rybak in the Ukrainian TV-show “Meeting Place” performing “I Asked the Ash” & “Bergrosa” 18.10.2014.

“When I was 4 years old, I and my parents moved from Belarus to Norway. Back then my parents brought some tapes of Russian movies with them. Among them, there was the comedy “The Irony of Fate”. I heard the song «Я спросил у ясеня» (“I Asked the Ash”) in that movie for the first time, said Alexander Rybak. – I’m familiar with the situation that this song tells about. Once, I myself had experienced the same emotions. The girl who I loved, and devoted my song “Fairytale” to, left me for my best friend. It was hard for me to pass through this break up. Now I try not to fall in love, and to put all my feelings into music”. Precisely this song was performed by Alexander in the Ukrainian musical TV-show “Meeting Place” on Saturday. The theme of this episode was cheating. And, in addition, Alexander played a piece of “Bergrosa” as the introduction to the song of another artist.

We had a guest on our balcony – the winner of “Eurovision”, Alexander Rybak.

We were visited today by Alexander Rybak, the winner of “Eurovision – 2009”. Sasha is not a rare visitor in the capital of Ukraine, but we met for the first time. Vgorode took the opportunity to ask some questions. In particular we asked about Alexander’s favourite places in Kiev and about Maidan. The musician told us that he loves Kiev for the fact that, despite its status of metropolis, it is still a colourful and green city, it is not dusty like many other cities.

The whole world learnt about Alexander Rybak after his victory on ESC. The smiling Norwegian conquered the audience not only with his charisma but also with his talent as a composer. The song which was acknowledged as the best one almost unanimously by European countries in the international contest, was personally written by the performer. Sasha is very proud of this fact and continues his cooperation with the committee of this contest now as the author of lyrics and music.

Александр Рыбак презентовал

Alexander Rybak presented three premieres in the center of Kiev!

Ahead of “Halloween” the winner of “Eurovision” and one of the most charming artists of CIS and Europe -Alexander Rybak invited all his friends into the “madhouse” in the city center of Kiev! It’s the club-restaurant “Tolstoy” that has became such a place for one day. At the door of the club the guests were welcomed by crazy men in straightjackets, and inside they have been waiting on a show by the experimenter, Alexander Rybak. The artist presented three premieres at once – the new single, the video, and the new Russian program!

The topics of the evening were preceded by the video shoot for Alexander Rybak’s song “Dostala” (“You’ve driven me up the wall”). In the plot of the video the singer flees to an insane asylum, away from his obsessive female fan, who annoys him by her calls and just pursues him everywhere! And then he manages to leave his maniacal fan in the madhouse, but he leaves it himself for a normal life. The video was filmed with inspiration from real events in the life of the artist!

‎29 sep 2012 Meet&Greet in Kiev, Ukraine

What a day!
Well, I’ve been thinking all the time, how lucky we are!  Alex so often comes to Ukraine and we have an opportunity to meet him again!
I knew from FB that Alex came to Kiev on shooting. So when I went to work on saturday morning I brought my old camera. Thanks to Yana and Julia, the meeting was held in a small, cozy cafe near the hotel “Riviera” where Alex usually stays.
It’s tradition to come to meeting with gifts. When we were discussing gifts, I offered to give him a picture from all of us. I worked to 8, and then I decided to take a taxi, pick up the picture from home and then fly to the cafe.

Report by Julia Bezbakh

Short report from yesterday’s meeting in Kiev:) I was celebrating my Bday with relatives when I got sms from Yana. I think it was something around 16.00, she told she reserved time for M&G at 20.00. I had to gather fans. That was a disaster, because I was far away, and my phone was dying and I knew how many complaints we’ll get from Ukrainians who don’t live in Kiev. That was tough even for Kiev citizens, but fortunately I have a great team of Ukrainian Facebookies who helped me to arrange everything. Also many thanks to Marianne Mata Hari Saietz for fast reacting and making an event post at the main wall immediately after I asked her.

We gathered around 20-25 people there. Girls from Ukrainian Team Facebookies went to that street and found the place, but that was not so easy to make them put tables together, many restaurants refused to do it, so this is why we couldn’t tell people the exact place in advance. I was happy to see many familiar faces and also some very new. All new ones came thanks to the wall posting:)

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.
