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, performing at concerts and leading music workshops at migrant centres and music education hubs. This concert, part of the Making Tracks tour, will feature solo and collaborative performances from each of the project's eight 2019 Fellows, including Kaviraj Singh (santoor, vocals), Louise Bichan (fiddle), Rapasa Otieno (nyatiti) and Melisa Yildirim (kamancha).

The line-up includes:

Louise Bichan (Orcadian fiddler)

Rapasa Otieno (Kenyan nyatiti player and multi-instrumentalist)

Barbora Xu (Czech / Finnish kantele and zheng player)

Melisa Yildirim (a Turkish kamancha player)
