Since 2010, Making Tracks has brought world-class and diverse music from all corners of the globe to a network of leading venues throughout the UK.
Re-launching this year, their ambitious new model brings together emerging artists from the UK and around the world to showcase unique musical traditions, initiate new collaborations and contribute towards a global community of socially and environmentally-engaged musicians. Following a 10-day rural residency, the group will go on tour around the UK, as well as leading music workshops at migrant centres and music education hubs around the country.
We're proud to bring Making Tracks to The Queen's Hall - and Scotland - for the very first time! This concert will feature solo and collaborative performances from each of the project's eight 2019 Fellows: Kaviraj Singh (santoor, vocals), Louise Bichan (fiddle), Rapasa Otieno (nyatiti), Melisa Yildirim (kamancha), Barbora Xu (guzheng, kantele, vocals), Arsen Petrosyan (duduk), Katariin Raska (torupill, parmupill, saxophone) and Luna Silva (vocals, ukulele, cavaquinho).
