Earlier in the week there are appearances by Huellas, a panpipe group from Ecuador, and by the Kenyan singer and lyre player Ayub Ogada. The Bow Gamelan Ensemble has an outdoor session (near the Windmill pub). And through the week the public are invited to wear Musical Rain Hats created by the resident artist, Will Menter: the headgear includes tuned metal strips, and the wearer has to walk under a sprinkler.
For mere contemporary music by British composers, the main opportunity is this afternoon in a concert by Sounds Positive. All a long way from the earnest sessions in the Norwood hall before single-figure audiences with which the festival kept going a few years ago.Reuse content
