It has taken 10 years for Eivind Sander to get this album finished. 10 years with a lot of memories, drama and history. Finally it’s here: Tilgi Meg.
In 2005, Eivind Sander, Reza Aghamir and Olav Erik Johansen went to the studio and started recording. But the project was put on ice and there were many different factors that made the prosess really difficult. It had to be 2012 before Eivind again decided to gather the guys to get the album done.
There’s a lot of history behind this record, and for Eivind «Tilgi meg» has become a very personal and special album.
The music is inspired by rap, soul and folk. All rap is Norwegian, but the choruses ar both in Norwegian and English.
Evind Sander graduated from «Teaterhøgskolen» in 1997, and has been associated to both Oslo Nye, Centralteatret and Nationaltheatret.
