Join us on the 3rd of November to listen to the magical sound of
Denmark-resident Gambian musician and composer Dawda Jobarteh is one of the biggest enrichments to the world music scene. He not only amplifies his instrument, the kora, a traditional WestAfrican harp and puts it through effects loops and distortion sounds to
transfer it masterfully into the here and now – as a wanderer between the cultural heritages of West Africa as well as Northern Europe he is equally at home in both worlds. Out of that background he skillfully creates a highly unique sound universe between folk and Afro-jazz from
two very different musical traditions, drawing on influences from two century-long historical cultures while still being firmly rooted in the modern age.
