August 6th marked the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atom bombs and Norwegian TV station NRK2 more than did it justice with their hour-long programme Aldri mer Hiroshima (Never Again Hiroshima).
It went out on Facebook and YouTube live as well and the YouTube link is copied below.
A raft of top artists and bands took part including two that have recently been reviewed in NMR – Löv and Dagny. There’s also a fantastic cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘A Hard Rains’ gonna fall’ by Åse Klevland and we recommend you check the Japanese dancer right at the beginning as well.
There’s quite a lot of discussion in Norwegian and Japanese in addition, particularly at the beginning so here is the running order for the musicians:
Lov: - 10.05
Steiner Raknes/Ayumi Tanaka/Kajsa Bolto/Nosizwe: 23.55
Åse Klevland: 49.09
