The world music project Blindnote has won an Octave for world music. The Octaves are the music awards of la communauté française of Belgium.
The Blindnote project brings together the leading members of the Belgian world music scene. The project is based on live performances where both the audience and musicians are initially plunged into darkness, in order to enhance their appreciation of the pure beauty of the music.
Some twenty instruments, from the sub-Saharan hoddu to the Anatolian saz, contribute to Blindnote’s unique meeting of sounds. Blindnote supports the work of the Belgian NGO Light for the World, which cares for blind children in Africa.
Blindnote is: Karim Baggili, Malick Pathe Sow, Talike Gelle, Vardan Hovanissian, Emre Gültekin and Osvaldo Hernandez.
