Music & Migration Workshop at the Huguenot Museum

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

The Huguenot Museum has teamed up with the University of Kent as part of the Being Human Festival.  This event is FREE but booking is essential; see link below.  The event takes place from 11 am to 12.30 pm.

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.’

The 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 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 fusion in musical composition in a relaxed setting.  Everyone will be given a djembe (type of drum) to use, but if you play an instrument take it along.
