A music project in partnership with Shivanova and Pegasus Theatre aimed to develop Asian music in the community and widen access to Asian music for young people.
Dj Tabla was an 8-week music project engaging young people (age 13-19).
Participants got the opportunity to develop their musical and performing skills using traditional musical percussion instruments and Dj techniques with professional musicians, Prakash Bangalore and Dj Karen O Brien.
The workshops led to a performance at Pegasus Theatre, where the young people performed alongside established professional musicians in front of paying audience. This allowed them to share their achievements with their peers and the community, increasing confidence and providing the opportunity for learning and enjoying different cultures.
