Music Connects

Music Connects is a project supported by Creative Twinning, a program of Netherlands Enterprise Agency, and other donors.

This project not only expands the Mitrovica Rock School’s audio engineering program, but also gives more attention to songwriting and band-coaching. This work improves the process of capturing all the wonderful music being made by the young musicians.

Music Connects includes the start up of Roma Rock School, integrating Roma youth in Macedonian society, and mixing elements of traditional Roma music with rock music. It also promotes multi-ethnic music education to Music School Enterprise.

The three schools come together regularly for training weeks, and once a year for the project’s high point: the Skopje Summer School. During this week, ethnically mixed bands write, rehearse and record songs together, culminating in a huge public concert in the city park.
