A world of music

This official year of diversity in Sweden the Urkult festival decided, maybe as a bit of provocation, to almost only book artists from the Nordic countries. Nevertheless, they have their roots in thirty different countries. On Saturday of the festival, you could listen to Senegalese Galaxy from Finland, Andra Generationen from Sweden with Turkish and Romani music, etc., and 20-yr-celebrating Baba Blues, on the photo.
A personal highlight on Saturday was taking part of the three-hour chanting workshop of Amina Annabi, where I learned that I actually could hold a tone steadily for more than a few seconds. Yes, this was the same Amina who should have won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1991, and almost did so, instead of a certain Swedish singer….now a steadily returning Urkult fan.
