Norwegian music is very diverse. We have our own style of folk music, but our biggest export is death metal and black metal (also known for burning of churches in Norway, sad stuff…). In the popular music, what the radio stations play all over the world we are not so much represented. Of course we have some artists that you might know about, and here is a short list.
– A-ha, pop (from the 80ies and until now, last farewell concert in December 2010)
– Donkeyboy, pop
– Maria Mena, pop
– Marit Larsen, pop
– Alexander Rybak, pop/folk (won Eurovision 2009)
– Madcon, rap/pop (the artists behind the Eurovision 2010 flash mob dance)
– Sissel Kyrkjebø, folk
– Sondre Lerche, pop
– Lene Marlin, pop
– Wenche Myhre, pop/folk
– Kurt Nilsen, pop/country (winner of World Idol)
