Making Tracks brings together emerging artists from the UK and around the world to showcase unique musical traditions, initiate new collaborations and develop strategies for music-based social and environmental engagement. Since 2010, Making Tracks has brought world-class and diverse music from all corners of the globe to a network of leading venues throughout the UK. Re-launching this year, their ambitious new model brings together emerging artists from the UK and around the world to showcase unique musical traditions, initiate new collaborations and develop strategies for music-based social and environmental engagement. Making Tracks begins this October with a 10-day rural residency followed by a UK tour, with Making Tracks Fellows performing at some of the country’s best venues and conducting music workshops at migrant centres and music education hubs. This concert will feature solo and collaborative performances from each of the project’s eight 2019 Fellows: Louise Bichan (Orcadian fiddler) Rapasa Otieno (Kenyan nyatiti player and multi-instrumentalist) Barbora Xu (Czech / Finnish kantele and guzheng player) Melisa Yildirim (Turkish kamancha player) Luna Silva (French/English/Spanish vocalist, ukulele player and percussionist) Kaviraj Singh (British santoor player / vocalist) Katariin Raska (Estonian bagpiper / mouth harpist / saxophonist) Arsen Petrosyan (Armenian duduk player) “A beacon of diverse music from around the world for the past eight years” – Joe Boyd: Producer (Pink Floyd, Toumani Diabaté) “The music business has come to acknowledge what we all knew in the first place: access to live music is an essential, emotional and experiential ingredient for a better life. Making Tracks reaches out and makes it happen.” – Ben Mandelson (WOMEX)
