Youth international folk music camp
– V Edition

SICILY, JULY 23rd – 30th 2023

Ethno Sicily is a musical, intercultural and international project, that will bring together young musicians so that they exchange the traditional music of their cultural background and share. Based on non-formal methods and peer-to-peer teaching, each musician teaches their piece to the others, by oral transmission. The result is a multicultural orchestra which plays pieces from all over-adapted with the influences of each participant. The 2021 edition, from Sunday, July the 25th (arrival/registration) to Monday, August the 2nd (departure), will bring together around 30 participants from all around the world, aged 18 to 30 years. They will gather for 7 days for various activities which aim to: ● rehearsals for musical creations (standard Ethno music workshop, every day), following the rule of Ethno; ● final concert with the whole group featured in the program of our international folk and world music festival Alkantara fest; ● Jam sessions with artists involved in the festival; ● leisure time for excursions and visit around the historical sites, including the sea and Mount Etna.


All instruments welcome (including voice).
It is possible to get an official invitation by our organization, if you have a music school or academy or university which supports your travel expenses.
