Vibrant folk trio Valkyrien Allstars kicked-off the 2012 Live At The Office concert series earlier this February with a spirited gig featuring such strong tunes as Fyll mitt beger på ny,Det er ingen hverdag mer, Himmel hav, Min Pipa and Jeg tenker på deg.
'Live at The Office' is a live concert series presented by the Music Information Centre Norway and NRK, the national Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. For a series of intimate concerts, MIC invites musicians to perform on an unlikely stage for a live concert; the office. Watch intimate video performances of your favorite Norwegian artist, recorded live at MIC’s Oslo office or in selected locations throughout the country.
Valkyrien Allstars – Ola Hilmen, Tuva Livsdatter Syvertsen and Erik Sollid – first met at a fiddle course back in the late 90s. They became friends and after some years decided to move in together and create a 24-7 musical collective. This happened in 2003 and just one year later the three were making their first national appearances in Norway. In Norway Valkyrien Allstars earned the epithet “explosive” the very instant they entered the music scene for real. The band’s eponymous debut from 2007 became something of a byword for whatever is vital and fresh. The amalgam of many genres and emotions was one thing, the youthful energy with which it was all done something else.
