    Conquered the world from his bedroom

    Kygo went from uploading his songs online to working with celebrities like Coldplay and getting a hotel named after him.

    Did you notice the happy music in the movie? The artist who calls himself Kygo has become Norway's biggest export item in pop music since A-ha ruled the world in the middle of the 1980s.

    Kygo was the first artist to reach one billion plays on the streaming service Spotify. But not long ago, he was an unknown boy from the far north who distributed songs to a small fan base on the Internet. From his bedroom in Bergen, surrounded by the magnificent mountains and the world famous fjords in the western part of Norway, Kygo built his own musical spaceship. In a short time, he has placed himself and Norway among the world’s leading electronica artists.

    His name is Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll and he started taking piano lessons at the age of six. At the age of 15 he discovered the wondrous world of electronic music and started to record his own songs on his laptop. At the time, he lived in his own world. But it wouldn’t last long – more and more people embraced his melodic tropical house music as it spread like a hurricane online.

    Today he is regarded as one of the biggest artists in Electronic Dance Music (EDM). The rock band Coldplay contacted him directly to ask for a remix of one of their songs. He has sold out the Hollywood Bowl for two consecutive days and played at the closing ceremony of the Olympics in Rio. He holds his own concerts and joins festivals worldwide, where he plays for hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic spectators. He has also had the honour of playing at the Nobel Peace Prize Awards.

    Kygo often collaborates with exciting international artists and is known for his spirited and extensive live shows. He has become one of the world's greatest artists and is a role model both for Norwegian music and the Norwegian people. What could be better than to highlight Norwegian music by showing the country from its best side through life changing experiences?
