season 2, episode 6 | Amanda Kauranne and Spiros Delegos

‘’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 sit around the same table and discuss how the knowledge of an experienced local musician could be shared in the advantage of another that just arrived in the country!
Is there a possibility for a fair exchange of knowledge about two different realities?
What should any foreign-born musician be aware of living in Finland, and what knowledge can they offer to enrich the diversity of the local music scene?

Amanda Kauranne is a distinguished musician, traditional singer, music journalist, and Master of Music from the Arts University Finland folk music department, living between Finland and Italy.

Spiros Delegos is a doctoral candidate of the DocMus Doctoral School at the Sibelius Academy with a master’s degree in the field “Ethnomusicology and Cultural Anthropology”.
