Music and Migration

November 24, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

This workshop will explore the origins of some of the music we hear today by looking at the journey music makes with its people when they migrate. Working with Syrian darbuka virtuoso Rami Merhi and songwriter and musician Anna Neale from the University of Kent, ‘Music and Migration’ will aim to recreate this journey exploring different Arabic and Western rhythms, creating a new fusion in musical composition in a relaxed setting. Everyone will be given a djembe to use, but if you play an instrument please bring it along.
