GLOBAL MUSIC GATHERINGS
Ethno is JM International's programme for folk, world and traditional music. Founded in 1990, it is aimed at young musicians (13-30) with a mission to revive and keep alive global cultural heritage. [....] 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.
