MIC's Listen to Norway series continues with Barnevisegruppa Måltrosten's 'Labbetruten'
This record presents a number of fairly unknown children’s songs, poems and riddles by beloved Norwegian bard Alf Prøysen. It is special because the recording features children singing for children; their own songs sung, in a sense, to each other. As always Prøysen’s material is warming, uncomplicated, familiar, commonsensical and wise. Labbetruten is a source of these things and musical joy for children as well as parents across the land.
