Music Across Borders is a new documentary series created and directed by Gameli Tordzro tracing lively stories of how music crosses borders: language borders, borders of the body and mind, state borders and borders of the law. Borders created by war are the most dangerous today, these borders shift continuously and inflict pain poverty, pain and misery on innocent people.

The evening starts with a documentary on Katrina Suwalski’s ‘Another World Band’ Ghana Tour 2015 capturing her collaboration with some of Ghana’s finest musical ambassadors Nii Ayi Solomon, Odomankoma Okyerema Pra and Tina Elivava Mensah. It treats music as a language within the context of migration and multilingual cultures across the borders the body, language and the state.

Following the documentary (40mins), Katrina and Another World play a live set demonstrating the historical and cultural links between Ghana and Denmark and the connections established between Danish Musicians and their Ghanaian counterparts, how they have used their music to cross multiple barriers and enriched themselves, others and the many countries around the world. They will be joined by Hesu (Spirit of Music).
