Building Cross - Continental Musical Bridges Project
Guyana will partner with two countries Bangladesh of Asia and Burundi of Central Africa to share their Musics that have led to Transformation, Peace and Social Healing among its peoples. The idea for this project was shared and further developed between three students of Future Generations Graduate School, Mr. Shahid Mallick of Bangladesh, Mr. Rene Niyonkuru of Burundi and Rohan Sagar of Guyana.
The approach will be to document these musical ideas of the three countries and to find a mutual platform where these ideas can be shared with other Nations.
