As winter draws near, Oslo’s most international music festival takes place. Many of the artists who perform at Oslo World Music Festival are big stars in their part of the world, but may be new acquaintances for most Norwegians.
About the festival
Oslo World Music Festival usually takes place in the end of October and beginning of November – in many ways the perfect time for a festival like this. Oslo can be quite cold and dark at this time of the year, but at Oslo World Music Festival you can get the feeling of being in more exotic places: Go to the Arabic countries with great raï artists, or let intense yoiking take you to Arctic regions. Move your feet to tabla techno, or swing your hips to afro salsa. Follow the stars of world music and go to wherever you want.
