The Denmark resident Gambian Kora virtuous and composer Dawda Jobarteh will play at ALICE Summer Series with his trio, and fill the Summer air with beautiful tunes.
Summer is here, and after months of lockdown we are excited to finally open for concerts again. With ALICE Summer Series we present a series of amazing local acts in the yard of Nørre Allé 7, in collaboration with Union. The outdoor concerts will take place on selected weekend afternoons all Summer between June 12th and August 15th, all seated and safe, and with a limited amount of tickets in order to keep the COVID-19-restrictions from the Danish authorities. We proudly present Dreamers’ Circus, Kogekunst, Dawda Jobarteh, Josefine Opsahl, Basco, Astrid Sonne, Spellcaster, Det Yderste Hav, Erna, Lund & Pultz Melbye, Lucrecia Dalt and more.
Due to limited capacity, we recommend you to buy your tickets in presale via Billetto. All concerts cost 100 DKK (50 DKK for children up to the age of 13).
We’re updating the programme regularly. Please stay tuned on our website and via the Facebook-event. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to a lot of lovely concerts in the yard all Summer!
Dawda Jobarteh Trio
The Denmark resident Gambian musician and composer Dawda Jobarteh is one of the biggest enrichments to the Scandinavian world music scene. He not only amplifies his instrument, the kora, a traditional West African pentatonic harp and puts it through effects loops and distortion sounds to transfer it masterfully into the here and now – as a wanderer between the cultural heritages of West Africa as well as Northern Europe he is equally at home in both worlds. Out of that background he skilfully creates a highly unique sound universe between folk and afro jazz from two very different musical traditions, drawing on influences from two century-long historical cultures while still being firmly rooted in the modern age. Dawda is almost a house musician at ALICE, and we’re delighted to present him as a part of the Summer Series program.
