World Music Movement Comes To Aotearoa

Press Release – Ethno New Zealand

Ethno New Zealand

January 18th -28th 2019

Global world music movement comes down under!

For the second year running Ethno will take place in Aotearoa. This time in January 2019 at Hoani Waititi Marae in West Auckland.

Ethno New Zealand is an artistic residency of traditional/folk/world music that gathers musicians and singers from New Zealand and the rest of the world for 10 intense days of music, friendship, sharing through workshops. Through this process we create a World Music Orchestra that will perform at The Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre (Private), Hoani Waititi Marae (Private), Silo Park (Public) and the iconic Auckland Folk Festival (Public).

Ethno is a worldwide music movement for young musicians and singers and is a programme of Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI). Ethno was founded in Sweden in 1990 and has since grown world wide. Today it is present in around 20 countries with a mission to revive and keep alive global cultural heritage amongst young adults.

Ethno NZ is a Marae based programme that provides an opportunity for people from across the globe to come together and engage through music in a manner that is characterised by respect, generosity and openness.

We have musicians signed up for Ethno NZ 2019 from Tauranga, Auckland, Dunedin, Wellington, Chile, India, Norway, Solomon Islands, Aboriginal Australians, Iran and more!

This unique experience opens a pathway to a global musical network for the diverse communities of New Zealand!

Ethno brings the world to New Zealand and New Zealand to the world!
