At our free Celebrating Sanctuary London festival event on the South Bank on 15th June, one of the highlights will be musical collaborations. Through the Platforma Arts & Refugees network we’ve paired Anglo-Polish singer-songwriter Katy Carr with Ethiopian-born Haymanot Tesfa (both pictured above) and Jewan Mohammad, a Syrian Kurdish instrumentalist living in Newcastle with a well known perfomer to be announced soon. We hope the collaborations will produce wonderful, surprising and beautiful music. And we want them to help bring the work of these artists from refugee backgrounds to a wider mainstream audience.
