Welcome to Estonia


Growing up as a young indigenous man in Australia, Australian IMC YAG member James Alberts aka Jimblah

James has always had trouble with identity and how society views his people. His music has given him the strength to rise above the racism, the self esteem issues and the negative stereotypes his people face daily. He is well respected within his community as a mentor, a leader, and a role model for younger indigenous Australians. He teaches in schools, jails, remote communities, and lectures at universities, on the positive aspects of hip hop culture, on raising social awareness, about breaking down the barriers that indigenous youth struggle with, and on how we can empower the next generation to be confident with themselves, to know who they are and be proud of where they have come from.


Singing for Change

This session showcased examples of choral projects throughout the world promoting music and social change as well as JMI’s Fair Play - Anti Corruption Youth Voices project (a global competition for original songs by young bands (18-35 years) on the theme of anti-corruption).  Also, young singers from Estonia got everyone singing!


The Manifesto for Youth & Music in Europe

The Working Group Youth of the European Music Council presented its Manifesto for Youth and Music in Europe and lead a debate on its relevance in and outside of Europe. After some body percussion to get everyone’s creative juices flowing, there were discussions in small groups about the practical implementation of the Manifesto, the results of which were presented using multi-coloured cubes.



Musik on Troubled Grounds, Spiritus Mundi

Young musicians from Israel, Palestine and Scandinavia came together in a follow-up session to Spiritus Mundi’s 2009 project “Our Songs for Tomorrow”. They performed together
and took part in a panel discussion: by the end
there was hardly a dry-eye in the place!
