season 2, episode 5 | Interkult with Andreas af Enehielm, Natalia Castrillón & Frankosun and the Family with Oladele Franck Koumolou

‘’Global club nights’’ is a networking and informative club series in collaboration with Caisa Cultural centre, Helsinki Open waves web radio and the Global music Department of Sibelius Academy, that aims to bring together all parties involved with music. With live music, seminars and workshops the events attempt to create bridges between musicians, event producers, agents, venues, and music lovers, bringing down barriers and creating a safe and creative environment of free expression. In a celebration of diversity, using the tools of intercultural collaboration and specialized knowledge, we provide the possibility of a neutral and safe space for sharing and exchange of knowledge, information, wishes and insights on the music industry in Finland, both on the part of the musician and from the business side while most importantly, sharing it with the community.

In this episode, we introduce INTERKULT (Kassandra ry), a nationwide cultural association whose purpose is to promote interculturalism through the means of art and culture, to Oladele Franck Koumolou singer and creator of the afrobeat orchestra Frankosun and the Family. Through the long experience of all the guests, we investigate the past, present, and future of interculturalism in the arts field, focusing on the music sector. We navigate through the evolution of intercultural collaborations, and we try to map the qualities of being part of them.

Producers and hosts:
Chico Matada and Vasileios Katopodis
Guests: Andreas af Enehielm, Natalia Castrillón and Oladele Franck Koumolou
