Songs & music

Astrid wrote a number of fantastic song lyrics intended for theatre performances and film adaptations. Many of which, together with their wonderful melodies, have become timeless classics in Sweden and beyond.

Pippi, Emil, Tjorven and Ronja allhave their own well-known and well-loved songs that many people know off by heart and enjoy singing to their children. They are also frequently streamed on music sites such as Spotify. ‘Idas sommarvisa’is, for example, often sung at Swedish end-of-school performances in the summer and many songs have taken on a life of their own beyond their original context.
