What is the Global Ethno Movement?

Ethno is JM International’s program for folk, world and traditional music, aimed at young musicians (18-30). Founded in 1990 in Falun, Sweden, Ethno’s mission is to revive, invigorate and disseminate our global traditional musical heritage. Today Ethno is present in over 20 countries, running a series of annual international music camps, workshops and concerts that promote peace, tolerance and understanding.

 

At the core of Ethno lies its democratic peer-to-peer learning approach, where young musicians teach each other the music from their countries and cultures. This non-formal pedagogy provides a unique opportunity for young people from across the globe to come together and engage through music, in a manner characterised by respect, generosity and openness.

In loving memory of our Kaumātua George Te Aroha Kahi (Tumanako) 
September 1950 - December 2020.

We are connected through the love, vision and support of the late George Te Aroha Kahi. George was a wonderful friend and teacher for the Ethno New Zealand whānau, guiding the kaupapa to its conception in 2017. It would not have been possible for Ethno New Zealand to have had the success it has, without George’s kind heart and sharp foresight. In kōrero with George, there was an understanding of how the Ethno New Zealand kaupapa could serve as a incubator for traditional musicians here in Aotearoa before they find their way to the global stage.

With love always - The Ethno New Zealand whānau
