Halm, strå, bambus og sykkelvaier
(Stubble, straw, bamboo and bicycle brake wire)
by Anders Rønningen, with valuable contribution from many of his musical friends on Madagascar,
is probably the most exotic Christmas release this year.


«I have enjoyed myself making this album a few late nights at Christmas time in 2013 at Antsirabe, Madagascar, where I have been so fortunate to live and work for a while.

It can be challenging to produce Christmas spirit when poverty is leaning against the wall outside, begging for food. Perhaps this has lowered the level of ambition and my willingness to gloss polish the music. I do not think it matters. The Christmas message might be even clearer. My Christmas dogma – and my hope for this recording – is that the simple, spontaneous, down to earth and maybe a little rusty sound will impart a Christmas feeling that does not conceal the real story that happened on the fields of Bethlehem in all its unthinkability: There, in a poor and dusty city – perhaps it was a bit like in Antsirabe – Jesus was born and laid on stubble and straw.

The main instrument on this recording is «Valiha», which is a Malagasy instrument made of bamboo and bicycle brake wire.

I think it’s a nice connection there, and therefore named this Cristmas Cd: ”Stubble, straw, bamboo and bicycle brake wire”. And with this, I wish you a great Christmas.

The product may contain traces of dust.»

Fulani is an ethnic group (about 20 million) who live in many countries in Sahel – the lower Sahara region of West Africa. They are traditionally nomads and herders. Today many are settled. The fulani culture also includes farmers, artisans, griots, and traders. About 1 million live in Mali. They are hospitable, proud and carriers of rich musical and other cultural traditions. Near the Sahara and the Niger bank they live their lives. Anyone who sits down and listens to the Fulani stories have much to learn. The recordings are made​ in Sevare in the Mopti region in Mali. The collaboration between singers and musicians from Norway and Mali, we want to contribute to the growing fulani church in Mali to use the music tradition in their worship. We hope that this cooperation will strengthen the ties between our two countries. Fulani voices are worth listening to.
