RYTHM & WIND


Rhytm & Wind Orchestra is a new international compositional collaboration between two composers, Katrine Suwalski (Denmark) and Dela Botri (Ghana)

The music explores the border between jazz and West African drum music tradition. The West African rhythms that make up the jazz roots, come here in their acoustic form.

"Our idea is beyond finding a common musical language, bringing the rich rhythmic tradition into the future," says Katrine and Dela.

The two met in Ghana in 2015 during one of Katrine's visits. Since then, they have appeared as guest musicians in each other's orchestra, both in Denmark and Ghana. In 2017/18 they started writing music together. A new music comprising percussion and horns, Rhythm & Wind.  Part of the music was released on the duo album Ghana Calling (Gateway 2018).

In Rhythm & Wind Orchestra Katrine and Dela have brought together leading musicians from Ghana and Denmark, as well as France-based Fula flute player Simon Winsé from Burkina Faso, to perform their new compositions during the 40th anniversary edition of Copenhagen Jazz Festival, July 2018.
