A legend celebrates 45 years as a musician. 

That one of Mali's great musicians, and one of the best percussionists in the world, lives in Oslo seemed like one of the best kept secrets in Norwegian music for years – but not anymore. As he is preparing for the celebration of 45 years as a working musician, Sidiki Camara is everywhere - a sought after musical collaborator, appearing in everything from progressive jazz in Ole Morten Vågans Mirror Image Octet, record breaking diaspora pop with Karpe and the disco/afrobeat/everything cult band Sex Judas. Earlier this year, his Norwegian breakthrough was crowfened with a Spellemann award for the album “Return to the Traditions”, where he blended music from Mali with Norwegian folk music. 



Sidiki Camara Group:
Sidiki Camara - percussion, ngoni, bala
Bendik Hofseth - saxophone
Jakob Young - guitar
Audun Erlien - bass

During Oslo World, Sidiki looks back on his career at Riksscenen with several musical companions. The singer and poet Sarah Camille will guide us through his long and varied story, and musicians from both folk music and jazz will take part in a celebration of some of the musical values he treasures the most: Musical traditions, interplay and improvisation. Whether you are an old fan or a new visitor in Sidiki’s universe, you are all welcome to this special concert during Oslo World.
