World Jam, Nottingham’s Global Poetry and Music collective invite you to join them to celebrate the launch of their multi-lingual poetry anthology, as part of Nottingham Poetry Festival 2019 at Peggy’s Skylight.
Travel the globe with poetry in diverse languages and authentic World Music.
“This anthology is something very special, pulling together contributions from twenty writers working in a variety of different languages. It embodies the welcoming, collaborative spirit of the World Jam collective, and of the city of Nottingham. At a time when the future of international collaboration seems uncertain at best, this collection is sorely needed, and it is wonderful to see so many writers coming together to build a better world with words. The poems in this collection are hopeful, but they don’t shy away from some of the more difficult aspects of modern culture. An uplifting read and thoroughly recommended.”

Travel the globe with poetry in diverse languages and authentic World Music from Arnica and Muha bands.
About Arnica: Combining elements of music, dance, costume, poetry and traditional art, Arnica celebrates the cultural diversity of the Persian diaspora and contemporary Britain. Arnica- Rubiayat fuses Middle Eastern and European folk music.
About Muha: MUHA are an intriguing example of the results that arise from meetings of musical minds across porous national borders' Songlines
MUHA offers a new tradition in contemporary Eastern European music, influenced by the multicultural society in the UK. Combining the melodic beauty of Eastern European folklore, North Indian Kathak rhythms and original lyrics they mesmerise with a musical feast rooted in the Slavonic tradition but cultured from the world.
