September has been a busy month with Amaraterra kicking if all off with a concert at Rich Mix and a sold out gig at our usual Jamboree night. Amaraterra also won the Battle of the Bands contest organised by World Music Network. What a great start to the season! Bonnendis received excellent feedback from our Rich Mix debut on 10 September. The sold out event on the theme of hope gathered Iraki, Anatolian and Greek musicians.
One of September's highlights was presenting my thesis in Mallorca at the Sant Domingo Cloister in Pollença to a diverse audience of about 150 people as well as sharing my experience on IB3 radio and on the local news. We stayed in Mallorca a couple more days to measure some acoustic properties of the xeremies as part of the Geste-Acoustique-Musique project. After Mallorca, we presented part of our ongoing research on the quena at the Woodmusick conference in Barcelona.
Next on the list is Världens Band's band 2016 autumn tour, kicking off with two concerts at Cornucopia Festival in Yorkshire on 23 and 24 September. See you there!
