The book Hitrakongen was launched in 2014, and in a short time it became very popular among children who became acquainted with the character

This is the village original, the single father - who in his own way works hard to rule in his kingdom. Deep down, he, like most people, is most afraid of the great love.

The children's book author Bjørn Tore Grøtte's text universe has now been transferred to a musical universe composed and arranged by Martin Myhre Olsen; a genre-free playful world with roots in modern and classical jazz, written for a large ensemble with some of the most profiled Norwegian jazz musicians today.

In the role of Hitrakongen is the legend in Norwegian jazz; John Pål Inderberg. The story is told by the unique Rohey Taalah who also offers magical vocals.
