Berwaldhallen reviews in the Swedish press

I’ve found a couple of reviews today from Salem’s Berwaldhallen concerts at:

Svenska Dagbladet http://www.svd.se/kulturnoje/scen/artikel_2043335.svd

Expressen: http://www.expressen.se/kultur/1.1368817/salem-al-fakir-berwaldhallen

I translated these reviews, and neither of them seemed too positive about the mix of Salem’s music with an orchestral backing, however I’ve checked out a few Swedish blogs as well as Salem’s MySpace and I’m glad to see that at least the real fans did enjoy the concerts.

If you were there at one (or more) of these concerts, then why not post a comment here about it! What did you think of the new songs?

As one of my readers posted in an earlier post comment, SR P4 will be broadcasting one of the concerts on New Year’s Day at 15:00 Swedish time (14:00 UK time) and I can’t wait to hear this. It will be a great start to 2009 :)

There is also a very interesting interview with Salem along with his very talented siblings Aminah, Nassim & Sami in Svenska Dagbladet today :

A young lady posted some footage that she may have take with digital camera or cell phone at that concert. Try searching his name and Twelve Fingers or One of the Others on You Tube and you should be able to see it.

Yes I've seen them!

"One of the Others" sounds absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to hear the recorded version.

Salem is just getting better and better.
