Een aantal jaar geleden, toen ik jonger was, viel ik min of meer onder de musicale betovering van een jonge muzikant uit Noorwegen. Jaren later is hij een beetje ouder…en ik ook. Maar ik was niet de enige, er waren er meer die onder dezelfde betovering waren gevallen en de meeste zijn nog steeds gevangen op de dag van vandaag.

A few years ago when I was younger , I kind of fell under the musical spell of young musician from Norway, years later he’s a bit older… and so am I. But I was not alone, there are many who fell under the same spell, and most still remain captive to this day. Continue reading Tusen Takk — Fan report by Anni Jowett→

Sold out opening for Rybak`s family show
The two 10 year old girls, Malin Kvinge Aalen from Sogndal and Vilde Wendel Nyberg from Alfaz del Pi, participated in the dance during a furious stage show last night. They’ll remember this for a long time.
– We’ve been practicing the folk dance we performed for three weeks,- Vilde Wendel Nyberg proudly says to Spaniaavisen after the concert. Along with her friend Malin Kvinge Aalen, she’s a member of the dance group “Dans Favor” which focuses on Norwegian folk dance. Both children and adults are in the group, which has regular rehearsals at “Alfaz del Sol” in Alfaz del Pi. The girls closed the Rybak concert with acrobatics while wearing national costumes on stage. So it was probably helpful that they both taken gymnastics before.

ALEXANDER THE VIRTUOSO
Alexander Rybak and The LVO were a huge thrill in Øksneshallen.
ØKSNES: Alexander Rybak came to Øksnes and instructed, charmed and shone in interaction with The LVO.
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→
