Win a trip to the Gibraltar World Music Festival
Following the outstanding success of the 2017 edition, Gibraltar is proud to be hosting the 2018 BrightMed and Gibraltar World Music Festival (GWMF) from 19th to 21st June. This three-day festival will welcome a diverse international group of musicians, artists and thinkers to the Rock, brought together by a theme as exciting as it is controversial: Borders. We've teamed up with GWMF to send YOU on a two night stay in Gibraltar with flights from London, accommodation at the iconic 'The Rock' Hotel and VIP tickets to the festival.
The seventh edition of BrightMed and GWMF embraces music, film and visual art, along with workshops and seminars. The inaugural BrightMed Jazz strand features major artists from the UK, among them Orphy Robinson and the Voicestra Polyphonic Collective - a 17-strong group commissioned by GWMF to highlight the legacy and vitality of black British music and the diversity of influences within and on the British Isles.
An iconic vibraphonist and multi-instrumentalist, Robinson – this year’s GWMF Artistic Director - has created a unique production that features such respected names as Carleen Anderson, the multi-award-winning American-born soul and jazz singer; and Cleveland Watkiss MBE, a vocalist memorably described by the London Evening Standard as ‘the best jazz singer in Britain’. With them are the best British-based jazz musicians, cherry-picked for the occasion: vocalist Randolph Matthews, guitarist Tony Remy. Flautist Rowland Sutherland. Cuba-born violinist Omar Puente, Italian-born percussionist Cosimo Cadore, academy trained harmonica player Philip Achille and many more.
From Ireland comes vocalist and composer Christine Tobin, lauded as much for her ability to improvise as for her eleven acclaimed albums, Scottish-born singer Mae McKenna and Welsh-born singer Llio Millward.
