Ethno Research held a series of online events that considered essential issues for inclusive, accessible and intercultural music-making practices and pedagogies through the lens of Ethno. These events brought together perspectives from Ethno global music gatherings, with leading experts in the fields of ethnomusicology, intercultural music-making, music education and music activism from across the globe.
At our final event of the series, Professor Katharina Doring of Ethno Bahia, and Gayighayi Mathews Mfune of Ethno Malawi, considered glocal music practices in response to Ethno Research publications, after a discussion with Professor Suzel Reily of the State University of Campinas, who due to illness was unfortunately unable to attend the event itself.
This particular event was free to attend, open to all, and took place online on Thur, 10 November 2022, 14:00-15:30 (GMT).
