Songs from The Julekalender
Music Manager exclusively manages the Songs from The Julekalender (The Christmas Calendar).
The show ran at Christmas 1991 (a Norwegian version was made in 1994, and a Finnish version appeared in 1997). It was hugely successful at the time, causing many invented phrases from the series to enter popular culture and was later released on VHS and DVD. It has since been associated with Christmas-time in the Nordics. The show is still frequently being re-broadcasted on TV during December, showing one episode per day for the 24 days of Christmas, and the music from the show is very popular every year.
The show and music were written and performed almost entirely by a trio of Danish comedy musicians called De Nattergale with financial and technical assistance from TV2, a Danish television company.
Music Manager manages the original Danish versions by De Nattergale as well the Norwegian versions by Travellin’ Strawberries and the Finnish versions by Trio Saletti – all under exclusive license from Saks Film.
