Global Sounds 2013

Music for Change's annual world music event, Global Sounds, took place on the 26th of August. The event was a community-spirited, family-friendly celebration of music from around the world and was free to audiences.

There were superb perfomances from a capella vocal group, Black Voices; traditional Eastern European music from the incredible Paprika; folk from multi-instrumentalist virtuosos Tim Edey and Brendan Power; and contemporary Afro-folk from Namvula. Emmanuel the Magnificant wowed the crowd with his incredible circus skills (including his unique ability for balancing bicycles on his head!) and wonderful percussionist George Fiawoo presented a hugely popular drumming workshop. Wheely Groovy provided a bicycle-powered sound system and delicious food was provided by Veggin' Out and the Canterbury Curry Club! Acclaimed storyteller Usifu Jalloh, entertained the audience with his storytelling skills and infectious laugh; he even treated us to a display of salsa dancing!

We would like to thank our funders Arts Council England and Canterbury City Council for their support.
