Oslo World 2023 at Riksscenen!

Tabanka Dance Ensemble

In the Tabanka Dance Ensemble's performance Jazz Ain't Nothing but Soul, the audience will be closer to the dance and music than is usually possible. Sitting on the floor around the stage, the audience will get to feel the rhythms of the drums and the dancers' feet. Light and smoke effects create moods that point backwards in time and towards our own present.

The singer and composer Monica Ifejilika performs the music together with Mali's leading percussionist Sidiki Camara and the Spellemann-nominated singer Stian Ehiabhi Omole Jensen, among others. In Jazz Ain´t Nothing but Soul, the dance is inextricably linked to the music, and the musicians and dancers draw strength from each other.
