with the support of

 Green Music Seminar and Workshop, Kaustinen, Finland  |   Urban Music Workshop  |   Discovery and Exchange Sessions  | 

The Urban music workshop was part of the European Music Council’s project Extra! – exchange traditions. The International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation participated in this project with two workshops; the first one was held in Finland in July 2008 on the theme of Green music. It gathered musicians from various cultures with different musical disciplines working with sounds and traditions from nature and with technology. The second workshop was in Slovakia, in Banská Bystrica. On 7th and 8th of November 2008 three Capoeristas: Professor Polegar, Instructor Popeye and Graduado Dinamite with their advisor Jose Ataíde Lins Santos held workshops together with local Roma youth and conservatoire dancers. These two days saw intercultural dialogue in the form of movement and music.
