The WOMAD Foundation is in discussion with Andrés Honorato, director of the Curaumilla Arts Centre, towards a remarkable collaborative project - 'Building Music'. Bringing together international musicians and instrument makers, this residency will explore the magical potential of clay, which has been used for centuries as a material for creating musical instruments. We have invited a group of musicians who play ghatam, udu, xun and ocarina, who will work and play alongside instrument makers from Chile and Brazil.
The week will be an opportunity for both making and playing in the beautiful surroundings of the Curaumilla Arts Centre. We will be offering one to one tuition, discussion sessions and film presentations. Sharing food, music and conversation is a universal experience and students will be able to sample the wonderful delights of the Curaumilla kitchen and also contribute to the menu with their own personal favourites.
