On Wednesday 1st August 2018 from 6.00pm, join us for a midweek chill out and after-work drink in Millennium Square, with music from across the expanse of Asia.

We will be showcasing a number of unfamiliar instruments and vocal styles in a mix that would delight any fan of world music. Traditional Chinese music, Indian raags and classical crossovers are just some of the inspiring compositions that are just waiting to be discovered.

Celebrate this summer and the diverse cultures of Leeds with beautiful sounds from Asia in Millennium Square!
