Mapping Migrant Voices

Share your music and your story

Funded by Arts Council England, Mapping Migrant Voices is a desktop app which maps diverse music(s) and oral histories from migrant diaspora living in Manchester. By presenting region-specific examples of music drawn from real-life individuals, Mapping Migrant Voices aims to encourage thoughtful engagement with music(s) from other cultures and to counter the othering often accidentally reinforced by projects describing non-western ‘world music’.

Led by OMF and researchers from across the UK, the project has collected and catalogued recordings of performances and/or transcriptions of music from Manchester's migrant communities, alongside oral histories of the people they belong to.
