Sahra is a concert project connected to the project Words:
Sahra is an electronic music concert in the Interkulturelt Museum | Oslo Museum in September, aiming to introduce some of the new mutations of the musical meeting between cultures.
The concert is part of the Words project, and it will be the closing concert of the exhibition standing in IKM.
Language is one of our primary means of communication as sapiens. And each type of communication has its limits. Hence Words project focused on language and aimed to involve the city in talks and considerations of what is lost in translation; we are looking into ways of expanding our ways of relating to each other, communicating, and embracing the meetings of different cultures.
And what is a better medium to relate to each other but music? The vibration that we all understand, regardless of our language.
As Gibran Khalil, a Lebanese-American writer, poet, and visual artist said:

"Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody."
In collaboration with Interkulturelt museum, and Oslo kulturnatt we create a concert that features three artists who work closely on meeting cultures in music.
