Oslo World 2023 at Cosmopolite!

Les Mamans du Congo & RROBIN

Led by charismatic singer and percussionist Gladys Samba, the women’s collective Les Mamans du Congo sings in the Lari language about the history of their people and the daily life of Congolese women accompanied by the dreamlike electronic sounds created by the french producer RROBIN.

Their second album, Ya Mizolé, will be released on October 13th, just in time for their concert at Oslo World. Live, Les Mamans du Congo & Rrobin is a thrilling mixture of choreographed performance, deep rhythms and atmosphere - both thought provoking and ridiculously groovy.

Hermanos Gutiérrez - SOLD OUT!

When you listen to Hermanos Gutiérrez, the composer Frédéric Chopin’s words of wisdom easily springs to mind: “Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two”. There is a shared understanding between these two guitar players, an intimate core to their otherwise panoramic music. With whiffs of surf rock and desert blues, Hermanos Gutiérrez is music for wide open spaces, with a healthy dose of inspiration from the late, great Ennio Morricone, or the vibes you get from the soundtrack to a movie by Jarmusch or Lynch.

Gaye Su Akyol

The last decade, Gaye Su Akyol has been one of the brightest stars of the alternative Turkish music scene. Her albums have shown an artist willing and able to search for new ways of expanding the anatolian psych rock tradition. On stage, she is one of the most charismatic front figures on the current rock scene. Her smoky voice and atmospheric, almost occult stagecraft can make her feel like a singer from another time. But the immediacy of her lyrics and the postmodern playfulness of her band makes Gaye Su Akyol an artist speaking to the present moment.

Roberto Fonseca

The history of Cuban music comes alive when pianist Roberto Fonseca takes the stage with his orchestra. Their concerts are events filled with dance, atmosphere and stellar musicianship. Fonseca was born into a musical family and made a name for himself playing with the legendary ensemble Buena Vista Social Club during the first half of the 2000s. Through countless collaborations and records, he has become a central figure in the renewal of Cuban music, from hip-hop to electronica, via soul, funk and latin jazz. But even though he has pushed the envelope during his entire career, his connection to the extraordinary musical heritage of the island remains strong.

Huun-Huur-Tu

Ever since their founding in the early nineties and the breakthrough album The Orphan’s Lament in 1994, the Tuvan quartet Huun-Huur-Tu has brought the rich, ritual throat chants of Central Asia to audiences all over the world. In doing so, they have not only made a name for themselves - they have played a unique role in spreading knowledge about traditional laryngeal singing in the world of modern music.

The quartet, still helmed by the original members Kaigal-ool Khovalyg and Sayan Bapa, has performed for kings and queens, music aficionados, in concert halls and at huge festival stages. They have also played memorable shows at Oslo World twice before - in 2009 and 2014. We are delighted to welcome them back for a third time this year!

Sara Parkman

Sara Parkman has found a way of embracing Swedish traditions in thoughtful and unexpected ways. The strong melodies and huge cinematic moments in her source material has made the violinist, singer and composer a breakout star on the contemporary Swedish folk music scene.

During her performance at Blå in March, we were completely blown away by the power of her voice, her stage presence and the emotional thrust of her music. The very next day, we contacted Sara Parkman about returning to Oslo World.
