Artist - Milun

Milun is ‘a meeting of two musical traditions’…four musicians come together in a joyous, energetic and colourful statement of unity.  Through a series of performances, School and Community workshops this project looks at the cultural sensitivities around preserving the traditional arts of the South Asian and Irish Communities living in West Yorkshire. This aims to generate conversation and interest about cultures and traditions evoking an appreciation and value of diversity, ultimately encouraging social cohesion.
