Youthful Music

Valkyrien Allstars is a folk music group consisting of three Norwegian youths in their early twenties. (Tuva Syvertsen, Erik Sollid and Ola Hilmen). They are from the eastern part of Norway and are all playing the national instrument the Hardanger fiddle. Valkyrien Allstars has existed since 2003, but they have been practicing as musicians since they were youngsters.

Modern Take on Traditional Tunes

Their music is based on traditional Norwegian tunes, but they have given the sound a new dimension and created pieces of music that gives them a more modern and international sound. They enjoy experimenting with music from other categories and cultures. In this way they succeed in bringing folk-music further ahead and can be reckoned as avant-garde in their field. The vocal gives it all a further dimension and their way of singing is also much based on original song-tradition in Norway.

Award Winning Musicians

Valkyrien Allstars has been awarded the first GRAPPA price for newcomers that gave them the opportunity to record and release their debut album, Valkyrien Allstars. In addition to several concerts and performances for official and private organizers, they were voted all the way through and into the final of the Norwegian Broadcasting/NRKs last edition of “Kjempesjansen” – a competition for talented young musicians.
