With the Capital of Culture year as a starting point, NorrlandsOperan wants to strengthen and develop the collaboration with music collegues in surrounding counties. Through regional starting points we initiate and participate in the Opening Weekend. On Friday 31 January Norrbotten Big Band with Mari Boine will do a concert at Kulturens Hus in Luleå.
For over 25 years, Mari Boine has been composing, written and singing in Sami in front of a growing audience. An ever changing artist who uses her sami language and heritage as base for influences from all over the world.
From Norrbotten we take the E4 road south to Umeå and Midwinter Jazz on 1 February. The tour will then continue to Sundsvall, Skellefteå, Östersund, Laksnes and Tromsö.
