Get ready for a breathtaking and adventurous concert at Romsdalsmuseet!

The gifted singer and songwriter Aurora Aksnes from Os creates magical music, with a huge following. She is heavily featured in festival posters and sells out concerts in record time. In just a few years, she has managed to become one of our biggest and most popular pop artists, with her career skyrocketing at an unparalleled pace in Norwegian pop history.

Aurora have written her own songs since early childhood, but it was coincidence that led to her to being discovered. She performed at her first concert 17 years old at by:larm i 2014, and since then her career has moved only forward.

Already before her debut album "All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend," was released in March 2016, she had managed to play at concerts on both sides of the Atlantic, and had reached a wide audience internationally with a series of popular singles. Just before Christmas in 2015 she released a cover version of the Oasis song "Half the World Away" that would give her yet another breakthrough.

The single reached eleventh place on the British singles list and has so far been streamed over 31 million times just on Spotify. On December 11, 2015 she performed two songs at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Telenor Arena. She won a Spellemannpris for best new artist in 2015, and Musikknyheter recently had the album on top of its charts. Her songs "Runaway," "Under the Stars", "Awakening" and "Running with the Wolves" have collected plenty of air time on the radio. And it does not stop there.

Like Aurora's music, her concerts are epic, adventurous and steeped in the artist's intense presence. She spellbinds, fascinates and captivates - and it is impossible not to be touched and carried away.

Aurora's album is on top of Musikknyheter's season's best list
