A musical portrait of Norway's most beautiful county.
Rogaland the Jewel of Norway
Rogaland is a miniature of all that makes Norway the most beautiful country in the world. See the deep fjords that cut through the steep mountains where the water is so clear the boats appear to be floating on air. Enter the countryside where the only sound is a brook bubbling through the moss covered banks and the distant bells on the grazing sheep. Visit the thriving yet cozy town of Stavanger with all its richly painted wooden buildings. See the coast where rich farmland merges with the North Sea.
All is set to the backdrop of an ever changing sky, sometimes gentle and colorful then troubled and moody. The music in this video, performed by Norway's finest recording artists, Secret Garden, Annbjorg Lien, Dalakopa, Tone Hulbaekmo, Steinar Ofsdal, Sigmund Groven and American composer, Mike Lynch, echoes the rugged beauty and quiet strength of this gem called Rogaland.
