WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PARTICIPATE
During Ethno Portugal, different mentors will conduct the creative process, help with musical arrangements, choreographies
and assist in whatever is needed.
We are looking for musicians, motivated and willing to dive in a amazing and unexpected journey.
Musicians from the same country must choose a traditional tune or song to share with all the other musicians, creating
the repertoire for the final show.
The final show will consist in moments with all the orquestra group, and moments with small groups, where musicians
can work closer together to explore even more the fusion, during all the creative process.
