Kyrre Gorvell-Dahll – also known as international breakthrough artist and composer “Kygo” - had his first performance ever in Manila on 26 October.
“Watching Kygo perform in the Philippines in front of thousands of Filipino fans was a great experience,” said Norway’s ambassador to the Philippines, Bjorn Jahnsen.
“There is a vibrant and thriving music industry in Norway with young and creative new artist coming to the global stage,” he added.
As a token and a souvenir ambassador Jahnsen gave Kygo a customized jeepney before his performance in Manila.
