Daniel Herskedal & Emilie Nicolas to Oslojazz!

The star duo´s majestic project completes the Oslojazz-programme for Cosmopolite.

June 20th, 2024:

We are proud to present Daniel Herskedal & Emilie Nicolas at Oslojazz 2024!

In the thickest fog in the pandemic, star tubist Daniel Herskedal composed the commissioned work Out of the Fog for Jazzfest in Trondheim, featuring pop sensation Emilie Nicolas on vocals, who also wrote the lyrics. Out of the Fog is a magnificent and atmospheric project, with Herskedal's picturesque tonal landscapes and Nicolas' crystal-clear vocals.

This will be the first concert they perform together since the album was released in 2022. It is also the first concert without audience restrictions due to the pandemic. In other words, this is a rare event that you simply must attend! Tickets here.

We have in total four star studded concerts at Cosmopolite, with Alfredo Rodriguez Trio, Vieux Farka Touré and Alexander Abreu & Havana D´Primera.

Alfredo Rodríguez Trio

The Cuban composer and pianist Alfredo Rodríguez has truly made a name for himself with a heartfelt and brilliantly executed Latin jazz style drawn straight from the streets of Havana, his hometown. As he himself has stated: "I play what I live." He has transitioned from a young promising pianist to a recognized, Grammy-nominated star worldwide.
