With a playlist that features such vibrant acts as Majorstuen, Eplemøya Songlag, Transjoik, Ragnhild Furebotten, Gjermund Larsen Trio, Diom de Kossa and Dei Beste Damene, DJ 99 has created the ultimate sonic backdrop for the upcoming Folkelarm showcase festival and music industry convention. The webcast, which features all Norwegian acts on the festival roster, is a taster of what the audience can expect ranging from pure traditional Hardanger fiddle tunes to a-capella vocal perfection, Afro-tinged grooves and electronica.
Folkelarm is a key Nordic music industry convention which aims at promoting acts from the Scandinavian folk music scene for domestic as well as international music industry execs and media representatives. The inaugural Folkelarm festival was held in 2005 and since then the event has been held annually. The event is owned and managed by the Norwegian Traditional Music and Dance Association and the Norwegian National Association for Folk Music.
A major goal of Folkelarm has been to promote folk music acts for a domestic as well as international folk and world music industry, but in parallel to this, the event has always been an event open for the general audience, resulting in what could only be described as a vibrant festival and a true audience success. Artists from the Nordic countries can apply for a showcase slot at Folkelarm, and a jury selects the artists based on a set of criteria established by Norway’s traditional music and dance organizations. Priority is given to acts that can be seen as viable for international careers.
In addition to the showcases, Folkelarm is a key meeting place for Norwegian and international world- and folk music industry execs. In recent years, Folkelarm has drawn app 50 international delegates from over 20 countries in addition to more than 100 domestic delegates. Folkelarm organizes seminars and workshops, as well as separate events tailored for the various music industry representatives.
Full programme and detailed info is found on the Folkelarm site.
