Cultural Collage Festival 2012

World music from Manchester’s diverse communities and beyond…

Manchester’s third Cultural Collage World Music Festival will take place in venues across the city centre between Thursday 10th and Saturday 20th May 2012.

The Cultural Collage World Music Festival is the only Manchester event to promote professional world music from the city’s diverse communities. It was started in 2010 by a voluntary group comprising local world music radio producers, promoters and performers, attracting around 8,000 attendees to its first programme of events.

The programme has included performers from around the globe, including DR Congo, Bulgaria, Jamaica, the Gambia, Argentina, Brazil, India and many other countries and has also included dance workshops and world DJ nights.
