Trattgrammofonsalong

Medan trattgrammofonen vevas kÄserar musikdirektör Erik Ask-Upmark om gamla tiders musikanter, tidsanda och den tidiga musikbranschens vedermödor.

Varmt vĂ€lkomna till Trattgrammofonsalong i Kulturens gemytliga Borgarsal! Medan trattgrammofonen vevas kĂ„serar musikdirektör Erik Ask-Upmark om gamla tiders musikanter, tidsanda och den tidiga musikbranschens vedermödor. Ni kan bland mycket annat fĂ„ reda pĂ„ att jazzmusiken uppfanns exakt kl 01.30 pĂ„ natten till den 17 november 1887, varför den vĂ€rldsberömda bandledaren Paul Whiteman hatade doften av nyklippt grĂ€s, och inte minst hur en liten skalbagge frĂ„n norra Malaysia kom att förĂ€ndra hela musikhistorien. Ta dig en svĂ€ngom till tonerna av en eldig tango pĂ„ dansgolvet – eller nöj dig med att lyssna och spisa knastrande stenkakor i all dess nostalgifyllda charm! Och förresten: Har du gamla stenkakor hemma pĂ„ vinden men ingen apparat att spela dem pĂ„? Ta med dem till Trattgrammofonsalongen och lĂ„t dem fĂ„ nytt liv igen!
Biljettpris: Entréavgift till Kulturen.

Lindy Bandet vil vÊre et nyt band fra SkÄne: Josefin Björk Werner and the Joyful Swing Band. De er et nystartet band, der er skabt til at spille for lindy hoppere.

Blues bandet bestÄr af to mÊnd, én pÄ akustisk guitar og én pÄ mundharpe. De er hÄndplukket fra den danske blues scene, fordi de er klar til at spille for bluesdansere, udmattede lindy hoppere og alle der vil nyde meddansernes selskab.

Yuletide Blues Workshop for Lindy Hoppers

SwingShoes brings you early Christmas joy

SwingShoes brings you early Christmas joy – on the day of the Yuletide Lindy Hop Party – a mini blues dance workshop with Philippa Svensson & Vivien Nivesse.

Date/time: 17. december 2016 kl. 15:00-17:00
Place: Kulturstationen VanlĂžse, Frode Jacobsens Plads 4, 1.sal, 2720 KĂžbenhavn (same venue as the Yuletide Lindy Hop Party)
Price: DKK 125,-
Ticket sale: http://www.swingshoes.dk/yuletide-bluesworkshop

Blues for Lindy Hoppers :
Already familiar with Lindy Hop but you’d like to dip a careful toe in
the Blues Ocean ? Let’s use what you know for a big head-start of fun on the dance-floor ! We’ll be looking at the Blues esthetic and
pulses, and how Lindy movements can be adapted to fit the rhythm of the music, taking you into new moves, shapes and holds!

Bio :
Philippa and Vivien met on the dance floor in 2011 with a slap to the face, and hit it off immediately. With experience in Lindy, Balboa and Blues they combined forces in 2014 to share the idea that any dance should leave you with a big unshakeable grin on your face. Philippa’s background in gymnastics and physiotherapy mixed with Vivien’s boundless enthusiasm brings solid technique to fun classes!

They have taught Blues and Lindy all across Europe as well as on their local scenes.

Party :
Don’t forget to get your ticket for the Yuletide Party – where the
late night live blues band will give you a chance to try out your new
blues moves:
