Olga Marie Mikalsen - Olga Synger Solo

Outsider Music. Olga passed away in january 2006 at the age of 91. She was best known as a "lyrical alto", a "outsider musician" and a fan of Bartok. She made her debut at the age of 53 in 1968, and performed at Carnegie Hall. She cut an album sometime in the 70s - but due to bad distribution, it hardly sold at all... Which is a pity because she delivers the same vocal extravaganca as Florence Foster Jenkins, with the same gung-ho attitude as Elva Miller. The link is to a CD made by an advertising agency for a Norwegian soda - Solo, hence the name "Olga Synge Solo" [Olga Sings Solo], where she delivers as expected; highly lyrical... enjoy.
