Over the last few years, I have been travelling to work with local musicians all over the world. I have performed with raga musicians in India and Nepal, with circus artists in Ethiopia, with gnawa musicians in Morocco and Palestinians in a refugee camp in Lebanon. I have played with jazz musicians in New York, Paris and Reykjavik and folk musicians in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
To share the impressions and cultural treasures from these journeys, I decided to compose ten pieces of music, one for each place I have visited.
Bagamoyo is a small fishing town on the coast of Tanzania, where I stayed for some weeks to create a show with musicians and dancers from Norway and East-Africa. One of the musicians I met there was Fadhilee from Kenya, who is a guest artist on this track.
