It is going to be part of her norwgian EP;“Bare Sånn Det Er”.

AVLYSER "HANNE & TRE TENORER..OG ET STJERNESKUDD! 2020"
-It is with great sadness that we must announce that this year's great Christmas tour with Hanne & Tre Tenorer and Anna Lisa Kumoji must unfortunately be canceled, says tour manager Trygve Sundbø to the website.
He adds that with the recent spread of covid-19 infection in Norway - which in turn has led to the 1-meter limit persisting throughout the year - the basis for such a large production has unfortunately disappeared.
The Christmas tour with Hanne Krogh and three of Norway's leading tenors was a huge success since they started in 2009. Last year they came together again and celebrated the 10th anniversary across the country, then together with the new shooting star Anna Lisa Kumoji. This year, they were all to gather for the last time with highlights from last year's concert in addition to a lot of new material. But that is not how it should go. The corona epidemic put an end to this as well.
-It hurts to see almost a year of work evaporate, but times are weird and we can only hope life normalizes in the foreseeable future, Trygve Sundbø concludes.
ÅRETS ANDRE LÅTSLIPP KOMMER 29. mai 2020!
“TIL VI SES IGJEN../Until We Meet Again” is Anna-Lisa Kumojis´ third norwegian song and her second release of the year.It is going to be part of her Summer EP "Bare Sånn Det Er” which is being released in July 2020!
“Til Vi Ses igjen” is probably the most sugar sweet, R&B/Neo-soul song that I have ever written.
It is Inspired by american west coast R&B and by the Norwegian Pop/rock band “Postgirobygget´s summer songs such as “Idyll” and “Sommerflørt”. In it I am describing sunny days in Scandinavian surroundings, the feeling of being in love and nostalgia.
Like my other Norwegian summer songs, this song is written with a playful atmosphere overall, but it also has a hint of melancholy as I long for the summer romance via the memories.

People stay home to reduce the spread of the virus and too help protect those that Covid-19 will hit the most.
Akuvi and I have relatives who are at risk and therefore the solidarity we see in our society is something we really appreciate. THANKS!
Inspired by the Italians, Akuvi and I wanted to contribute a little mini concert and some entertainment to all those who are now sitting at home.
Thanks to all our great neighbors in Huldreveien , passers-by and other spectators who were a fabulous audience from their balconies and on the ground (relatively 1 meter distance throughout the concert). It was pure joy to be able to do something nice for you all! ❤
