The Manchester International Roots Orchestra perform at Manchester Museum Thursday 9 April 7.00pm The Manchester International Roots Orchestra (MIRO) is a unique ensemble of musicians with roots from across the world, including refugee musicians. Their repertoire skilfully combines diverse musical influences from haunting Eastern European melodies, to the delicate textures of Middle Eastern percussion and vocals, through to soulful Sufi chants of South Asia and joyful African gospel ? embracing rap, hip-hop, classical music and jazz along the way. Taking inspiration from the Heritage Futures exhibition and after a series of workshops at Manchester Museum, on Thursday 9th of April the musicians of MIRO perform in concert. Through song, poetry and spoken word MIRO will celebrate diversity whilst exploring the uncertainty of living in unsafe places and the transformation undertook by settling in UK.”
