Nu-folk Global Connections has the objective to create a European Folk Orchestra of 12 musicians from 6 countries, giving them the opportunity to realise an original production of contemporary folk music and to make it circulate across Europe.

Countries involved: Italy, Spain, Latvia, Hungary, Belgium, Denmark.

The “Open call for musicians” is now closed. We have received many applications from very interested and skilled folk musicians – we’re glad to say – and now Nufolk Global Connections has officially started!

We're happy to share with you the second step of our Global Tour!
Let's discover the magic of #folk music! 🎶

International artists from all over Europe will join together to play the traditional sounds of folk music.
A show that enshrines a musical and cultural partnership that unites the various types of folklore in the world.
In this project that anthropologically embodies a new concept of 'doing together', we will spend the evening playing #folk.

Our project, co-funded by the European Union, will also be the subject of research and studies by UNICT (University of Catania, IT).
