COVID-19 – sucks.
Staying indoors – sucks.
But not everything has to suck.
Through it all, it is essential to maintain a positive outlook and to see a brighter future ahead. For ‘this too shall pass’ as the great quote says.
Besides TV, books and games, music can also undoubtedly lift the spirits. It provides endlessly enjoyable escapism especially in these incredibly concerning times. While we are unable to see bands in actuality, musicians and artists have continued to bring their music to us and keep us engaged with online performances. The longer you’ve been home, the more time seems to have blurred so you may have already missed some live-streamed concerts.
Below are six previously streamed events from soulful Scandinavian artists Sahra da Silva, Charlotte dos Santos, Oscar Soul Experience, The Endorphins, Adée and Shadi G. So grab a beer and popcorn and check out their social media pages for more!

Welcome to the Sofar Gothenburg series, "Songs from MY room"! This is a live stream series where guest artists from all around the world take over their live stream for their very own Sofar show.
What do we do as artists when we are advised not to meet people? Prohibited to sing in front of an audience, advised to stay inside. How does our bodies react to the idea of avoiding other people, holding distance?
For me personally, I feel it through body and bones, the lack of interaction of energy and to be able to sing live feels heavy to carry. So to be able to sing live again, even for just one person means so much. It’s an amazing power in moments shared with other people even if the moment is brief and far from everlasting.
Lots of love / Adée
LEAN IN - Live from the first "just you and me" concert held at Kalmar arts museum
Filmed during the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic - Kalmar March 31 st 2020.
During the Corona times, we decided to put together a live stream with the band. We got some amazing help from the guys at SPORTWAY to set up the video streaming production and we want to share the result with you here.
This is a song Oscar wrote with Joanne in February 2020. It is all about how it's important to turn to the music in these crazy times.
We hope you enjoy this clip. More will come out soon!
