When it comes to pop music, it seems that Scandinavian can do no wrong. And Sweden has LALEH among other talented Swedish artists to make the statement.
Laleh Pourkarim is an Iranian born Swedish singer-songwriter. She uses her given name Laleh as her stage name.
Laleh had her musical breakthrough in 2005 with her first single “Invisible (My Song)”. The same year at the Swedish Grammis Awards, she received seven nominations and won three: Artist of the Year, Producer of the Year, and New Artist of the Year. Her latest album, Sjung, was released in Scandanavia on 25 January 2012.
In late 2013, the album Colors hit the shelves, with the title song making it’s way up the single charts. She became commercially famous through the popular Swedish television show Så mycket bättre, where she was introduced to a wider audience.
Watching and listening to this Swedish singer-songwriter really is something out of the ordinary.
Laleh is an absolute sweetheart of Sweden and has become mine too.
Here are some of my favorite songs and one song where Laleh sings in Swedish “Vårens första dag” (First day of Spring)
