READY, SET, MOST!
A historic moment – we kicked off the very first MOST training on Monday with an informal welcome night where Balkan Music Export participants met up with mentors, such as and representatives of our Partners at Songlines and Hangvető, to mention a few.
Today, we started the Balkan Music Export training with courses, such as World Music in Theory and Practice by musicologist and anthropologist Martin Stokes of King’s College London; “What is world music? And how does it relate to the Balkans?” by Simon Broughton, Editor in Chief at Songlines magazine, and “Hybridization and the creative process in traditional music” by
Martin Stokes, with a special focus on the Balkans.
It’s not often that you get to see a whole class of musicians all on one Zoom-panorama, so enjoy – as much as we do 🙂
