As winter draws near, Oslo's most international music festival takes place. Many of the artists who perform at Oslo World are big stars in their part of the world, but may be new acquaintances for most Norwegians.
Knut Reiersrud: One of Norway's greatest guitarists has spent his time in quarantine comparing two decades 100 years apart: the 20's. When he was forced to changes his plans earlier this year, he recorded a concise album, "Ballads and Blues from the 20s", which turned out to be both very spontaneous as well as rooted deeply in history. This should not surprise anyone who has ever heard Reiersrud's music, as he has been hard at work for several years, connecting the blues he loves so much with other traditions, be it music from Setesdal, the Middle East, New Orleans, classical european music or the norwegian and danish books of psalms.
Sidiki Camara: Many people in Oslo with an interest in music may have the wind knocket out of them the first time they hear Sidiki Camara, one of Mali's greatest percussionistsand who now living in Oslo. Camara plays the djembe, as well as melodious instruments such as the balafon and the ngoni. When he gets on stage at Cosmopolite with his own band, the audience will be able to share vibrations with one of the most talented musicians Norway has seen.
