Calling refugee musicians in Europe

Liberty EU

DEADLINE JANUARY 29th 2021.
CALL OUT FOR REFUGEE MUSICIANS BASED IN EUROPE

UK arts charity ArtReach are seeking talented musicians across Europe from refugee and sanctuary seeking backgrounds to work with digital artists Addictive TV, creators of the acclaimed global music project Orchestra of Samples. Musicians will be recorded and filmed to create a new piece of music with spoken word by poet and artist Momtaza Mehri, and the new work will be presented as part of the Liberty EU project.

This is a paid opportunity and fees will be offered based on the musician’s experience and expertise. We are looking for musicians who specialise in traditional music forms and play traditional instruments, from percussion such as Kayamba or Mbumbumbu bass drum to instruments such as the Somali kaban, Ethiopian and Eritrean bowl-lyre, Qanun, Nzumari/Zumari flute/African oboe, or instruments on UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Please email your details or recommendations to: musicians2021@outlook.com with links to examples on YouTube or Facebook, a website if there is one and contact information.
