Global Fest: Roser Gabriel Pla: Arrelat – A Human Tree
This concert is the result of seeds planted during Roser Gabriel’s travels from Catalonia to the Nordic countries, to Nepal and beyond, where the diversity of humanity intertwines through music and movement. Roser utilizes collaborative and holistic processes to create a concert that celebrates the richness of cultural diversity and the great benefits of people working together through the medium of the arts.
Now in its fourth year, Global Fest is the annual festival of students, teachers, alumni and guest performers in the Global Music degree programme at the Sibelius Academy. The festival celebrates cultural diversity and builds bridges for intercultural communication, understanding and collaboration through music and the arts in general.
This year, the festival takes place from 11 to 13 December and features performers from Aruba, Australia, Brazil, Catalonia, China, Finland, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Greece, Nepal, Senegal, Serbia, Spain and Tanzania.
