Who we are

We are the British Council's Music team and we believe in the power of music to connect people across cultures. We work with our global network to create music projects and opportunities that allow people to exchange ideas across genres from grime to folk to contemporary classical, connecting countries around the world to the huge range of music talent and expertise we have in the UK. Our team is made up of members drawn from various backgrounds in the British music industry with decades of experience between us as performers, sound engineers, orchestra managers, promoters and educators from independent to commercial sectors.
