Let’s Make Moving Music! Workshops music & dance + pop-up parade @ AB Summer Terrace 25/08

On August 25, our musicians will take you on a journey in their unique universe of whipping (brass) wind instruments, (West) African rhythms, cosmopolitan dance moves and pop-up parades. Want to create on-the-spot rhythms or choreographies with them? Join us from 14:30 to 20:00 in Gare Maritime for music and dance workshops followed by a collective final performance!

 

At MetX, we like to experiment with improvised musical performances accessible to all. Our goal? Gathering a large group of musicians (amateur and pro) to play together with minimal preparation, preferably in the public space! We will test it LIVE for the first time during the AB Summer Terrace on August 25 in Gare Maritime.
