Let us celebrate and recognise the different cultures that we have as part of the Cork LifeLong Learning Festival 2019

As well as coffee and goodies, we will have beautiful music played by Citadel. Citadel is a musical refuge for residents of the Kinsale Road Accommodation Centre. The group was formed after a successful project collecting guitars for people in direct provision ended up in residents playing together and performing in a world music day event. The band consists of people from Burundi, Russia, Pakistan,Iraq, India, Belgium and Ukraine. Every musician performs music from his/her country, accompanied by the other musicians. This result in a fusion of tunes and rhythms from all over the world. Citadel’s main aims are to offer a musical outlet, create awareness and encourage integration through cultural exchange.
