Big Sing Rheged Oct 17th

Musical Journey in the Land of Shadows.083The Gamelan was centre stage for our Big Sing at the Big Screen event at Rheged on October 17th.

Children from schools that have had taster workshops, and players from our community and training sessions played an introductory piece on the gamelan to 200 children from local primary schools. They will also accompany the singing for the specially composed cantata and film “A Musical Journey in the Land of Shadows” which incorporates the musical genres BlueJam is currently focusing on – gamelan, jazz improvisation and electronic soundtracks.

This BlueJam event aims to develop Cumbria Music Hub’s singing strategy for Cumbria and increase access to the acquisition of musicianship skills through combining vocal, compositional, percussive and improvisational music-making.
