Music and Migration Workshop

November 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


We are teaming up with The University of Kent as part of the Being Human Festival.

In 2018 Being Human festival features hundreds of free activities in towns and cities across the UK, alongside a series of international activities. Their events explore big questions, big debates and innovative ideas focused around the theme of ‘Origins and Endings’.

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.


Please follow the eventbrite link to book, the event is free but booking is essential.

Any questions regarding the event please contact: a.c.neale-widdison@kent.ac.uk
