Music & Dance
Here we present reviews of the most exciting traditional music and dance.

Santa Claus dances the Norwegian Støveldance – the Boot Dance – See the video clip!

Christmas is party time. For many Norwegians, celebrating Christmas is real rock`n roll, and the biggest rocker of them all is Santa Claus. Santa is the world's best traveller, but he is also the world's best dancer. When he gets in party mood, as he is most of the time doing, he dances the Norwegian Støveldance - the Boot Dance. This amazing dance is so intensive that most people only dance it once in the evening, but Santa has to do it many times, and he is the King of Dancing. To dance the Støveldance, you have to many things at same time as stepping, jumping, running, swinging around, shouting, singing, and the hardest part: drinking! The most difficult thing is that you have to sing in a mix of Norwegian and English for almost second word. See the amazing dance being demonstrated here!

You`ll Never Walk Alone, Liverpool - Performed by the Bedouin Ibrahim from Jordan - Whats our video clip!

From Liverpool this beautiful song has spreaded around the world - even to the harsh deserts in Jordan. This song brings joy and happiness, and its joins people across nations, oceans, mountains and also deserts. I told the Bedouins about the fantastic football club Liverpool F.C. and the people from Liverpool. They stay together in good and bad times. Bedouins and people from Liverpool have very different lifestyle and culture, but one thing they have in common is unique hospitality and good guts.
