Every year, December 1-13, the small village Korpilombolo, near the Finnish border, arranges what they call The European Festival of the Night. In 2008 I performed at the opening together with the group Teater Sláva, an amazing group of song, dance, and instrument performers, with a mystical, magical sound!

(Below) Performance photo from an inauguration of a bishop in the northern parts of Norway (Bodø). In Norway they still have a state religion, which of course is Christianity. Therefore, the Norwegian king attended and officiated the inauguration. This picture is from the Gala Performance after the inauguration. The new bishop had spent some 12 years in Kōbe as a missionary, so he had asked for some connection to Japan.
