MOMBI - 2010 - 2012 - 2018 - ONE DAY FESTIVAL

MOMBI 2010, a one-day event at Madsestuen, one of the oldest settlements near Randsfjorden, Norway. Mombi 2010 is a series of outdoor experiences that seek to open up new rooms in breaking points between architecture, technology and art. Madsestuen (now called Madstun) is a historic settlement with ruins of early settlements, animal graves and remains of active use for many centuries. The place is newly cleared and cultivated, after having been abandoned since the early 1980s. In 2009, the old house was restored and rebuild with the new parts buildt in Massiwood panels.

MOMBI 2018, a one day event at Madstun.

Mombi 2018 will be a combination of music workshop / concert, performance and food culture.
We are so fortunate to be visited by the Basque duo Ttukunak, which consists of the sisters Maika and Sara Gomez. They play on an instrument called Txalaparte, which consists of wooden logs laid on bows. The Norwegian percussion group Batagraf will collaborate with TTukunak and Sudesh Adhana and perform a concert in the forest at Madstun. Together with the Indian dancer Sudesh Adhana, they will create a unique experience between the trees.

At the same time, after the concert, we organize a new food tasting experience with Zoe Christiansen, The Northern Company, based on seaweed as an ingredient in combination with mushrooms, berries and other local ingredients.

Supported by Norsk Kulturråd, Oppland fylkeskommune, Bioland, Norsk Massivtre AS Energigården.
