Music of many cultures

Music from China, Russia, New Zealand, Mauritania, Bolivia and Israel will be showcased at World Music II in Haywards Heath.

Presented by the University of the Third Age (U3A), World Music II offers the chance to hear a cross-cultural range of musical instruments, played in a wide variety of styles.

Howard Marchant, group leader of Haywards Heath U3A, said: “World Music is the fastest growing sector of all types of music. It encompasses folk music, traditional songs and music using unique local instruments and in some cases a fusion of indigenous and western styles.”

The show is on Thursday, February 27, from 2pm at Haywards Heath Methodist Church, Perrymount Road. Entrance (£1) includes tea or coffee and biscuits at the interval.
