Our histories in the music of the Barrio

FUNDACIÓN SIDOC & PROFESSOR IAN MIDDLETON

This is a collaborative project in which young members of the music group Tambores de Siloé will construct digital narratives about their family history and how they came to live in the underprivileged neighbourhood of Siloé in Cali, Colombia. They will then use these histories for creative musical projects such as instrument-making and composition. The activities and products will be led and analysed reflexively by practitioners from Fundación SIDOC, who have worked directly with Tambores for over ten years, and ethnomusicologist Professor Ian Middleton, who has collaborated with the group since 2014.
