About Polkabjørn og Kleine Heine

Did you wake up this morning thinking it´s about time I went to a good old Norwegian yodeling and accordion concert, sprinkled with some funeral songs, throat singing and Ricky Nelson ballads? Then maybe this is something for you!


A random meeting at a yodeling festival in Huttwil, Switzerland, in the summer of 2007, resulted in the duo Polkabjørn & Kleine Heine. It´s mainly yodeling and accordion, but also country music, throat singing and funeral songs.

Polkabjørn is a autodidact yodeler and a decent throat singer schooled by the world renowned throat singing quartet Huun-Huur-Tu.

Kleine Heine was already was already in his early teens a well-established jazz musician and is now a professional criminal, in Bergen, Norway. He has also proved himself to be a decent song writer with their latest single " I like to ski", which was recorded as a unofficial FIS NORDIC WORLD SKI CHAMPIONSHIP OSLO 2011 song, which landed them the job of entertaining tens of thousands of people ahead of the official medal award ceremony in Oslo.

The third member of the duo is the operatic tenor, Hallvar Djupvik, who is currently working on an ice-skating musical about the life and death of the world renown author David Foster Wallace.

In August 2010 they were surprisingly announced as the official warm up act for the Norwegian part of the A-HA farewell stadium tour. They performed for crowds up to 30 000 people. As Polkabjørn later commented; " In the past we have performed for many people who did not know who we wore, maybe thousands over the years, but never this many at once."

Their repertoire is varied and includes yodeling from Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Who for example does not remember the Swizz summer hit from 1936; Mein Vater ist ein Appenzeller? Or “Ich wünsch' mir eine Jodlerbraut” witch ran like a plague in Germany, the winter of 1942? If the mood is right they might even play a funeral song, or some Ricky Nelson.

There will be polka, there will be yodeling, there will be castanets, there will be accordion music, there will be a semi alcoholic operatic tenor singer and even vegetables, but it won’t be nice.
