Come and join us today for the evening of cosmopolitan instrumental impromptu music from Ukraine!

About the project

In July 2015, 30 selected young musicians (16-23yrs) from across Ukraine, gathered in the southern city of Kryviy Rih. They took part in the first Ukrainian music camp of this kind, produced by Roundhouse (London) and Ukrainian non-profit organisation ‘Shelter+‘ (Kryviy Rih).  Three UK and three Ukrainian professional musicians worked with the group to create a body of original music that was recorded in Shelter+ state of the art studio, and performed across the city in a central park, an orphanage, a hospital and an army training camp.   

In November 2015, six selected young musicians will be invited back to London to take part in Roundhouse’s On Mass with jazz star Jamie Cullum, along with young musicians from Nigeria, South Africa and across the UK.

7 musicians were selected for the London tour after a one-week music workshop in Ukraine. And on Wednesday evening they are coming to play their impromptu jazzy instrumental tunes in Cambridge!

The project’s music is available on soundcloud.

One of the pieces by the musicians is also available youtube.
