A Zimbabwean marimba player, Syrian singers and some fantastic Portuguese Musicians, all coming together to record their music for a permanent archive with the British Library!

In collaboration with Phill Minns, of Best Foot Music, we organised a day of global music at South Street Studios. The project aimed to highlight community musicians from diverse backgrounds, including refugees, asylum seekers and migrant bands. We’re extremely lucky to have so many incredible musicians right here in Ipswich from all over the world, but unfortunately they are often overlooked by mainstream music venues. We wanted to create a day where their music could be celebrated!
