Swedish Jazz dialogues with International World music
DUETS is a new concert series at Stallet Världens Musik Theatre during autumn and winter 2022/2023. Once a month, we will present a unique live music experience where an international world/folk artist plays with an established Swedish jazz instrumentalist and composer. The basis of these concerts is to present to a curious audience artists who compose new music and play unusual instruments from different countries, on stage with a well-known Swedish musician who is established in the jazz world. The idea is to let the artists have a dialogue between their original repertoires and throughout the voices of their instruments, giving space to the improvisation as well.
The concert series is in partnership with WOMEX, the biggest Music Fair in the world, since some of the international artists have been showcased by the biggest international music fair.
Celebrated international and Swedish instrumentalists with beautiful compositions interpreted in jazz and folk language. Jazz is becoming more and more open to the influences of other genres and different types of music. Folk/world music is one of the more suitable for the contamination of sound and instrument technology. Therefore, audiences of these genres become closer and closer. We believe that offering both folk and jazz audience lovers the chance to reach each other's world is perfect in these times, where cultural life is so hungry for new experiences and in desperate need of re-discover the beauty of differences.
