artists from the 2008 nobel peace prize concert

I totally forgot that the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony and Concert were staged in Oslo last week. And like last year, I missed watching the concert this time too. But thanks to a Robyn spotting at paolosavi’s blog, here is a picking of the artists that graced the stage where the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari “for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts.”

Robyn (With Every Heartbeat and a brilliant version of Be Mine – make sure to watch the second half of the clip)

Marit Larsen (If A Song Could Get Me You)

Jason Mraz (A Beautiful Mess)

Il Divo (Adagio)

Diana Ross (Do You Know Where You’re Going To and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough)


marit larsen live @ parktheatret scene

Knut and I watched Marit Larsen in concert last evening at Parktheatret Scene, an intimate concert venue in Grünerløkka, Oslo.


My Little Pony, an Oslo-based indie pop band, was the warm-up act and their music created just the right atmosphere for the main event later that evening. Local music media writes that these guys are influenced by the Beatles and Belle & Sebastian among others. The two guys on stage last night were easy on the eyes, and that’s just a bonus to the easy-on-the-ears, friendly and naive music they delivered. It’s the kind of music I would probably listen to while making shapes out of cottony clouds as I lie on the green grass one summer day.


First coming into the music scene as the guitar-playing member of the M2M duo who was bigger in Asia than they were in Norway, Marit Larsen has grown into a charming sweet lady, with a voice full of character and great songwriting skills. She’s loved by many in Norway and there’s no doubting why. She has emerged as one of the country’s top pop artists with a slew of radio-friendly hits and a persona that’s cute as a button. It was such a pleasant experience listening to Marit, who performed songs from her highly-successful debut album Under the Surface, her well received new album The Chase, and even a cover of one of the M2M songs, Don’t Say You Love Me (here on this Youtube clip).

And here she is performing the breakout single “Under the Surface” from the namesake debut album, right until my camera’s battery ran out.

More on Marit Larsen here.

youtube it!

I still haven’t gone through my photos from Portugal thus couldn’t make a proper entry about that trip. In the meantime, I’d like to share these two Youtube videos that I could watch over and over and over and over, yeah you got the point.

These guys are crazy! Two of them are, I believe, pinoys.

This guy is sooo darn cute. Ehem.
