Sweden 2015 - Jon Henrik Fjällgren - Jag är Fri (Manne Leam Frijje)
After all the hectic hoo-haa of this weekend's events I totally forgot to show you this, from last weekend's Melodifestivalen semi-final.
Essentially it's a lad from Colombia who was adopted by Sami parents as a baby and was brought up surrounded by their culture, who is singing the kind of mid tempo ethno-plodder you hear in crystal shops. But there's more.
Witness this performance from last week's MelFest. Campfires. Regional dancing. Flying ghosts. Yes, flying ghosts. By the time it's all finished you'll have clean forgotten the song, so you'll have to play it all over again! It's what your eyes are for!
(Be warned that Swedish telly are past masters at pulling down YouTube videos before the MF final. So if this disappears suddenly, don't fret. I'll do all I can to search it out again. It's worth the wwait.)
