We arranged another house concert this weekend and it was amazing. Fantastic audience, good food, good music, old friends and new faces.
“Troll Mom’s Lullaby” is a Swedish children’s song, written by Margit Holmberg (1912-1989). It’s about a troll mom who sings a lullaby with the words “Oajajajaj buff” to her eleven children, as they are the most beautiful words she knows. The song was first released in 1943.
«Trollmors vaggsång» er en svensk barnevise, skrevet av Margit Holmberg (1912–1989). Visa handler om en trollmor som synger ei vise med ordene «Oajajajaj buff» til sine elleve barn når de skal sove, ettersom de er de vakreste ordene hun kjenner til. Visa finnes under kategorien «lekevise» i Nu ska vi sjunga fra 1943, en sangbok for småskolen som har blitt brukt av flere generasjoner svensker. (Wikipedia)
It takes up a lot of time, but it’s also very rewarding on a personal level. Here’s a couple of photos and a YouTube clip from one of the concerts at Krakabøla Marked in Gamlebyen. I was lucky enough to get Crescendo Barnekor (kids choir) to perform for us and they did a fantastic job!
I figured I’d give you a little peek on what I’ve been doing lately. For a while I’ve been working on my music: recorded a few songs, played them live here & there and uploaded them to YouTube. Today I also created a Facebook page, so feel free to follow me on either platforms: Facebook and/or YouTube (don’t be afraid to click “like” or “subscribe”). No obligations though. The Facebook page is a public site, so you don’t have to register at Facebook in order to see it. There’s not much on there yet, but hopefully I’ll have more material to share in the not too distant future.
My new material will also be available for streaming on several platforms shortly, but it’s a process that takes some time. One of the songs I’ve uploaded has English lyrics, there’s one instrumental and the rest are in Norwegian.
