Band on the Wall presents a series of films about African music concerts which took place in Manchester from June to September as part of the London 2012 Festival, called We Face Forward.

Musicians from two of Niger’s leading groups – Etran Finatawa and The Mamane Barka Ensemble – performed at The Royal Northern College of Music in July.

The Endless Journey is the title of a touring event that is a live music show, a documentary film and a photographic exhibition recounting the musicians’ attempts to stem the haemorrhaging of Niger’s cultural heritage in a powerful music performance accompanied by images and film.

In partnership with the Womad Foundation, a creative learning experience for schools has been put together which is led by the musicians of Endless Journey to educate and inspire children to value their cultural heritage by meeting extraordinary musicians who have travelled and performed their traditions worldwide.
