Världens Band, an ensemble of 13 musicians from 3 continents who first met on an Ethno camp, will visit the International Centre for Community Music at York St John University, on Friday 18th October 2019. The band will perform a free concert at 6.30pm in the Chapel, all welcome, while students will have the chance to take part in a workshop in the afternoon.
Världens Band performs a mix of folk and roots music from its members’ native countries in a collision of cultures and a style self-branded as ‘Transglobal Roots Fusion’. Swedish melodies meet Scottish reels, English guitar accompanies Indian classical song, Galician pipes play Balkan melodies and the Senegalese kora dances over Mediterranean rhythms. The result is a unique and exciting blend of culture, personality and style.
The concert is free and open to all – just come along! If you’re a student at York St John University and are interested in taking part in the workshop, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and sign up.
