Ethno is Jeunesses Musicales International’s program for folk, world and traditional music. The program, founded in 1990, is aimed at young musicians aged 13-30 with a mission to revive and keep alive global cultural heritage amongst youth. Present today in over 13 countries, Ethno engages young people through series of annual international summer music camps, as well as workshops by working together with schools, conservatories and other groups of youth. Ethno promotes emerging artists by touring selected groups of talented musicians through its’ Ethno on the Road initiative. Ethno provides a unique opportunity for young people from across the globe to come together and engage through music in a manner that is characterised by the respect, generosity and openness. At the core of Ethno is its democratic peer-to-peer learning approach whereby young people teach each other the music from their countries and cultures. It is a non-formal pedagogy that has been developed over the past 25 years and embraces the principals of intercultural dialogue and understanding. The goal is that through these interactions, musicians will be inspired to deepen their musical interests and build a global network to support their future careers. Each Ethno event embraces a combination of workshops, jam sessions, seminars and performances to develop young musicians both personally and technically. Ethno is a platform for building respect and tolerance, preserving cultural heritage by ensuring that traditional, folk and world music live on within young people, and is transmitted from generation to generation. It widens and deepens relationships between musicians and cultures from around the world, whereby participants are able to build a greater appreciation of each other’s respective cultures through music. As such, Ethno uses music as a powerful tool to combat xenophobia, intolerance and racism.
