Roots & Flutes will be taking place in September in Tower Hamlets, East London and is getting strong support!
Roots & Flutes celebrates the multi-cultural origins of UK music - from traditional European classical to Rai to Desi Fusion to steel drums. It provides an opportunity for any musician/band from what ever cultural roots whose music, however fused, can be traced to a classical start point to perform at City Showcase Roots & Flutes in Mile End Park on Saturday 17th September, This will be a free family friendly event and all those who apply by 22 July will be put forward for an online public vote to see which 10 will perform at the event. The lucky artists will then receive onstage feedback from a panel and the winner will receive onward mentoring and 2012 performance opportunities.
AND ... Shingai Shoniwa and DJ Ritu are both lending their support.
"This is awesome. I'd love to be involved - How can I help?" Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes)
"City Showcase Roots & Flutes presents the perfect opportunity for talented music-makers to be seen and heard! Beyond the pap for Pop Idol this initiative is for artists who are serious about song, composition, and performance!"
– DJ Ritu (BBC Radio/A World In London)
