An Ethno is a gathering of young musicians from around the world for workshops, concerts and recordings.
Musicians live together and teach each other tunes during workshops they conduct themselves, assisted by experienced Artistic Leaders. Everyone gets an opportunity to learn new music, and typically around 15-20 tunes and songs will be taught.
The week-long camp culminates in a series of concerts, which may be stand-alone, or connected to a larger festival.
Throughout the world, Ethno concerts are respected for their artistic virtuosity, superb arrangements and positive energy.
In terms of audience size, they range from 500-seater venues like Musik Vid Siljan in Sweden, to the 80,000-strong Dranouter Festival in Belgium.
At the end of the Ethno, not everyone leaves for home. Some go on to the next Ethno. Some stay back to discover the country and culture. Many participants become friends for life, and often form new bands and projects with the people they meet during the camp—Ethno is known to change people’s lives in incredible ways!
