To celebrate the diverse and vibrant Indigenous music and performance art, the Indigenous Studies Discussion Group at CRASSH will present a family-friendly workshop, at which various groups of UK-based Indigenous artists from across the world will teach their unique music and dance style. The workshop will be followed by a concert performed by groups involving Indigenous Quechua artists.
