The launch night for our new ‘Music Action International presents…’ series was an incredible success, with uplifting music and dancing in the aisles.
Our brand new series was created to showcase our amazing music facilitators from around the world who are passionate about transforming lives affected by war, torture and armed conflict.
Our first event was packed-out and featured singer-songwriter Noga Ritter, our creative facilitator who delivers Harmonise in schools. Noga Ritter was accompanied by her new 8 piece band, bringing together a wealth of London’s finest musicians.
Noga enjoys travelling the world and bringing together different cultural influences and musicians, providing a rich depth to her music which was complemented perfectly by an amazing performance from our group of teenage refugees from around the world, Everyday People LDN.
Everyday People LDN is a group of young refugees and asylum seekers from countries including DR Congo, Afghanistan, Syria and Eritrea who joined together following our creative music residency at Southbank Centre. They perform material inspired by their hopes and dreams for a better future, in partnership with British Red Cross.
Following amazing collaborations with BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Singers, the London Syrian Orchestra at prestigious venues such as Southbank Centre, Rich Mix, V & A Museum of Childhood, St Mary’s Music Hall, King’s Place and Amnesty International, this unique ensemble is one not to be missed!
