Concerts

An album with memorable concerts and artists performing live at various festivals in the Nordic countries.

Authentic afro-funk

Vaudau Game is something special. I have seen many bands in my life, but this Group of Artists stands out with their authentic, and energetic afro-funk, soul and R&B style. Their songs are ultimately killer party dancefloor hits.

Sadly you are gone (Linkoban)

A message of sympathy for Linkoban (Ling Ly) who passed away from aggressive cancer in the beginning of the year 2016. She was a humble star, a terrific person, and a great performer. She turned 30 only.

The year 2016 will probably be remembered as one of the saddest years in the creative and artistic field as of losing a lot of them.

The same year countless iconic cultural influential have died. Sadly are gone now Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Gene Wilder, Sharon Jones, Prince Buster, Debbie Reynolds, and George Michael. You didn't go alone Ling, you left in great company.
