Cambridge University Society for World Music

Welcome ! You have reached the webpages of the only Cambridge society that caters to all forms of world music,with special emphasis on folk traditions.

To begin with , a clarification on the scope of the society. Since there are several societies in Cambridge dedicated to classical and popular versions of European/American music, we have decided to limit ourselves to all musical traditions apart from the ones mentioned above.We shall,however include all forms of European and American folk music within the scope of our Society.
 
Whether it's the South American rhythm or Flamenco-dancing or Indian classical vocal performances...in short,if (almost) anything musical  turns you on, this is YOUR society. You need not necessarily have to be a performer (you can, indeed be of great service to the society  listening to the din we create in our rehearsals!) to be a positively contributing member of the Society. However,in case you are a performer ,we are just too glad to include you within our swelling ranks of 'informal musicians: we make music for its own sake' [wow,that almost sounds like a band!].
No,we are not a band:though a novel orchestra with some rather uncommon combination of instruments is an idea some of us are toying with.Do come to our informal jam-sessions, listen,perform,suggest....we are so  looking forward to seeing you there!!
