Music crossing borders on Fri, 9. Sept 2022

We will have an afterparty for the Crossing Borders in Music and Research seminar at Tenho Restobar in Kallio. The concert is open to everyone, even if you are not attending the seminar. There will be several musical performances that all cross borders in one way or another. The musical styles are mostly from Latin America and West Africa. The first band starts at 19.00 and the main act Jaranas del Norte will begin at about 20.30.
