Help us bring the world wide project Ethno to New Zealand in 2018!

Ethno is a music project for young musicians within the folk/world music tradition. It is an international network that started in Sweden in 1989 which has now spread all over the world. We have now gathered a dynamic team to begin the exciting task of starting an Ethno in Aotearoa and next need your help to kick us off!

What is Ethno about?

Ethno promotes emerging artists and provides a unique opportunity for young people from across the globe to come together and engage. Through a series of annual international music camps and workshops, young people experience cultural exchange through the powerful medium of music.  

Ethno is a platform for building respect and preserving cultural heritage by ensuring that traditional, folk and world music lives on within young people, and is transmitted from generation to generation.

The intention of Ethno is to revive and keep global cultural heritage alive among young people. Ethno is a platform where meaningful intercultural dialogue, through music, can take place.

How Ethno works

At the core of Ethno is its democratic peer-to-peer learning approach whereby young people teach each other the music from their countries and cultures. It is a non-formal pedagogy that has been developed over the past 25 years and embraces the principles of intercultural dialogue and understanding. The goal is that through these interactions, musicians will be inspired to deepen their musical interests and build a global network to support their future careers. Each Ethno event embraces a combination of workshops, jam sessions, seminars and performances to develop young musicians both personally and technically.

Help raising funds

If we reach our target of $1000 we can become members of Jeunesse Musicale, the umbrella organisation for Ethno. In order to do this we need your help to spread the word and to sponsor this exciting project.

Thank you so much for your support! It means the world to us.

Love from the Ethno New Zealand Team
