Hayâtuna, a unique musical event and a social development project for empowerment through music
On Saturday July 9th “Hayâtuna”, a unique musical event will place at The International Academy by King Hussein Park in Amman. This musical event is presented by the Columbia University Middle East Research Center (CUMERC) in cooperation with a Swedish organization called Spiritus Mundi.
Hayatuna is a music performance with some 20 children from Amman, who will present both newly-written music and traditional Arabic and Western songs. The songs have been written and rehearsed during a six-day workshop which is currently taking place in Amman. During this period the children are assisted by musicians, choral conductors, music pedagogues, child life specialists, volunteers, and students. The process is directed by three workshop leaders from Sweden and Jordan.
Hayâtuna is a Swedish-Jordanian project that aims to create a platform for competence and capacity building and social development in the Levant by using music as a tool. The focus is on vocal music, choral singing, dance and creative music and text writing workshops. The initiative is funded by Eric Ericson International Choral Centre and Carpe Vitam, supported by the Swedish Institute.

Malmömusiker ger utsatta barn hopp om framtiden i Jordanien
Drömmen att få skriva egen musik och uppträda inför en fullsatt salong, att få lära sig dansa hip-hop och att få ingå i en stor kör blir nu verklighet för 20 av Ammans mest socialt utsatta barn när en grupp Malmömusiker om 10 dagar reser ner till Mellanöstern för att arbeta med lokala musikpedagoger.
