Det er mye å sette seg inn i for frilansmusikere. Man må være sin egen manager, søke om midler til kunstneriske prosjekter, og rapportere på dem.

Artist Catalogue

Samspill har en egen katalog som presenterer alle medlemmene, deres musikk og sjanger. Dette er en god profileringsmulighet for deg som musiker. Artiskatalogen brukes til å formidle ulike sjangre og musikere ovenfor aktører og konsertarrangører.

Global Folk Sessions

Global Folk Sessions was a lovely way to meet musicians I didn't know. It was fun to share my music and my way of playing traditional instruments with others. You learned so much from the other participants, and immensely enjoyed the mentors' way of leading the group. I can say with my hand on my heart, that I have made new friends and colleagues, and I am already well into working with several of them. Thank you very much for the great work you do! I was so happy to be invited to participate, but GFS was even better than I expected!

Askanu Hiphop, Baluba

I have wanted to play for young people for a long time, but I didn't know how to go about it. Through Baluba, I have had the opportunity to play in schools, meet young people, talk to the children, exchange ideas with them, and see how they react when we perform. It was educational for me and intense, and I am very grateful.

Sunday World

I only have good experience as a producer for Samspill's Sunday World in the autumn of 2021. I received good support and follow-up throughout, they work seriously and professionally in every way. I would like to work with them more in the future!

Baluba fills a unique and long-awaited role in Norway's music industry. There is a broad consensus that we need more diversity on the stage for children and young people.

The culture industry in Norway has its specific codes which are not easy to crack. Many newly arrived and unestablished musicians therefore need tailored guidance and a network within the music community.

Tidelines, Baluba

It was a great pleasure! Many thanks to Samspill and Riksscenen for the opportunity Gregor and I had to create a new school production. We worked with two very inspiring, dynamic and experienced producers, Vegar Vårdal and Siri Kvambe. We can't wait to see the children's reactions!
