Karoline Leon Nordby is passionate about creating music experiences with Latin American music and established the cultural business concept Kafésynk in 2017.
I collaborate with youth organizations, cultural venues, the districts of Oslo municipality, and other cultural actors.
In the autumn, music education programs for children and youth will be set up, in addition to major concert productions and cultural events, with a focus on Latin America.
Common interest or just curious? Feel free to give me a call; let’s get together for a nice coffee meeting!
I have a degree in psychology, organization and management, and have work experience as a stage manager and stagehand at various large productions in Norway and abroad.
At Kafésynk, I produce my own projects and hire both artists and technicians for implementation.
I’m also a booking agent and coordinator for external artist groups who want to set up their concerts on Kafésynk’s platform.
I grew up with a mother who suddenly became “burnt out” and bedridden. In my early teens, I used my energy to care for her and to take care of the house.
But a couple of years later, I discovered salsa dancing and music. Here I found my own little “breathing room.” When I danced it was just me and the music, and nothing else.
Later, after a long academic education, I found my way back to dance, music, and Latin American culture.
I now want to give other young people the opportunity to be captured by the Latin American rhythms, as I did, and give them positive experiences through, and with music.
