He is a musician from Norway.
His parents are both classical musicians,
but he writes very inspired, violin heavy,
folksy pop tunes– and sings in English.
(Despite the above link being an international import.)
He is young and impish
and just happened to win the Eurovision Song Contest last month.
He won with a song inspired by Norwegian folk music
and was “backed up” in the contest by folk dance group,
That performance is on youtube.

The dance is traditional; the haller, I believe.
