Kari Bremnes: on straightforwardness and shelter

Publisert: 02/02/2009 av Christian Lysvåg


Kari Bremnes 2009 (photo: Siren Lauvdal) (400x300) Kari Bremnes has just released her thirteenth solo album entitled Ly (shelter). Its songs tell of life-changing decisions and simple, guilty, pleasures, big unwieldy emotions, and the little feelings that permeate everyday existence. It is a collection of human stories and human destinies, conveyed in Bremnes’ trademark forthright poetry. We start the interview by suggesting that Kari Bremnes’ catalogue of songs is about to become a part of the Norwegian songbook and thus part of our national cultural heritage.
