The Oi Oi Festival

Bergen International Festival's sidekick, The Oi Oi Festival, started off in a church today. They have made a new version of the Folkophone, where persons are asked to sing one note, and this is recorded. You may play the old version here.
This time the singers are the boys and girls of the street, and they got some way of expressing themselves! When you sit in a church and listen to these people and the wonderful voice of Eldbjørg Raknes, you are (that's me really) pretty close to tears. Don't tell anybody!
