Oslo, Norway is a city of many unique qualities and one of the multi-cultural melting pots of Scandinavia. 


Oslo has everything! Wide variety of museums, archipilego of small islands on the fjord, awesome sculpture parks, castles,  modern waterfronts, wall to wall bars and top restaurants.  


But as an American that has lived and spent time in major cities in Atlanta, Chicago, New York and other major cities you just didnt hear much about Oslo. The exception was Norwegian music artists! Norwegian music has gained increasing international recognition in the last two decades and with that great venues in Oslo and other cities for newcoming musicians to build thier music talents. 


Oslo is a city packed with music culture. It has a proud tradition in blues and jazz inspired by international music legends!
