Year Round Work

Hello From Brazil

Thanks to the Turing Scheme, we sent young dancers and musicians from Edinburgh College to Salvador, Brazil to work with our partner 'Banda Dida'. Together, they developed a new carnival performance work, culminating in a performance at Salvador Carnival. Check out this amazing account of their experiences.

Youth Music Incubator Grant

Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival is delighted to acknowledge an award from the Youth Music ‘Incubator’ fund. Our project ‘The Art of Succession’ will enable five young people to train and deliver in local and international music festival contexts, enabling them to thrive within the music sector.
