The two chosen Joker Melodies have started their journey. The Umeå Joker Melody just came back from our friends in Silkeborg (DK), and will now be traveling to Riga, Latvia.
Have a look at this wonderful performance by Silkeborg Guitarorkester. They are quite remarkable.
We just had an idea! We want to collect as many videos of our friends – you guys – from around the world playing their own local folk melodies. The idea is to collect all these video and add them to a RETHINK Folk Music YouTube playlist, so we’ll have all of you playing together in the playlist. It doesn’t matter at what level you play your instrument. The most important thing is that you want to play something for us, and that you can record a video with your phone, computer or camera.
Later we will challenge the participants and ask them to play and record one of the other melodies in the playlist…!
If you want to participate, then please send a video-file to us (you can use Dropbox or WeTransfer) to our e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org – The deadline is November 1st.
We’d love to have you involved in this, and create a big and beautiful playlists with folk musicians from all over the world playing their own local folk melodies!
Best of luck and we look forward to receiving your videos.
