About Ben Olander:
Ben Olander is one of modern Sweden’s foremost balladeers. His music is played frequently on Radio Sweden’s P4 (a countrywide group of 25 local stations). Ben works closely with Janne Bark and Mats ”MP” Persson, known for their collaboration with two of Sweden’s best-known musical artists, Ulf Lundell and Per Gessle.
Aside from his musical talent, Ben is also a captivating storyteller. In his despair regarding the increasing victimization, immigrant hostility and denial of the Holocaust, Ben has put together a powerful show with which he tours around Sweden and the USA. With song, music, beautiful image slides, and pathos filled storytelling he enters the show to fight against evil, with Raoul Wallenbergs deed as the starting point.
