Explore various cultural musics with MDBrunch throughout this year and feel confident to teach them to your own groups, thanks to the authentic native practitioners that MDBrunch is working with, to deliver each of these exciting live music events. Learn about the history and culture of Ukraine through both song and some dance performances, exploring the music, it's features, the language and how to approach teaching the pronunciation of it from an authentic master practitioner and finally sing some songs to experience the culture first hand.
On this very specially targeted #MultiCultural, we are very excited to host an optional WatchParty of Eurovision in honour of the should be hosts, Ukraine. You are welcome to stay with us and watch it on the big screen, but there is no obligation to stay after the live singing and cultural exposure to Ukrainian music.
