Location: Bergen Offentlige Bibliotek
Commissioned composition from Romskip, Sunday (cancelled)
Two explosive concerts will be given by dynamic Bergen band Romskip on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 February.
It has created a commissioned work on generations – the theme for this year’s festival. How do the various generations differ? How are they the same, and how do they vary?
This theme will also be addressed in purely musical terms. Bergen is known for many different musical waves. What musical genes make up Romskip? What performers have been important for them? And, not least, which of the songs they heard from their parents when very young have left their mark? Do Bosnian and Norwegian children’s songs differ?
The concert contains new compositions which play with and are in dialogue with the tradition they hail from.
Suitable for all.
