Global Sounds Portsmouth is a unique Arts Council funded music project launched by The People's Lounge in partnership with ArtReach & Journeys Festival International to bring together musicians from around the world who live in Portsmouth.

Connecting musicians from different countries, continents, faiths, and cultures to share musical traditions and create new music inspired by the many corners of the globe they all stem from.

We come from Iran to Nigeria, Tanzania to Lithuania, Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia, Libya to Pakistan, South Africa to Brazil. Together we seek to explore our different cultures, languages, life journeys, and musical traditions, and express our shared experiences, humanity and love of music as a instrument of unity that challenges and transcends boundaries. The concert on the 24th November @ All Saints Church was a showcase and celebration of all the music the group have created over the last two months.
