Belize

In 2013, CiH founder William Harvey traveled to Belize to visit music schools, give a master class, rehearse with the National Youth Orchestra, and perform alongside brukdong musicians at the Bliss Centre for the Performing Arts. His trip was funded and organized by the National Institute of Culture and History. Here is the project report, with pictures: part 1 and part 2. The video above shows a workshop in which William taught young musicians a folksong from Afghanistan (at the time, he also taught at Afghanistan National Institute of Music). Here’s another video of him learning a brukdong song from the same group.
