On Thursday, January 20 at Believe in Music, 20 artists from 20 countries will come together for five hours of livestream concert performances in a musical celebration as part of the Global Livestream. Over the course of the five-hour livestream, performers will unite the world in music.

The morning of performances will kick off at 6:00 a.m. Pacific Time with The Brass for Africa Teacher’s Band. Located in Kampala, Uganda, Brass for Africa is an award-winning charitable organization creating brighter futures for disadvantaged children and young people through music education and life-skills training.

From there, the livestream will turn to New South Wales, Australia, for a special performance from the melodious epic folk band, The Heart Collectors. Shortly following, Tokyo-based Keisuke Ito will perform original songs on the Shamisen, a traditional three-stringed Japanese guitar.

Other performers include Philippines-based alternative rock band Mayonnaise, a fan favorite from last year’s Global Livestream; At’ Adau, a fusion band from Sarawak, East Malaysia playing traditional and modern instruments; Kenyan recording artist, Apesi (Mnyama Mkali); classical and improvising accordionist Pawel Janas from Warsaw; Renegade Brass Band from the UK, combining raw hip-hop with brass instruments; Dutch pianist and composer Martin Fondse, the country’s 2021/2022 “Composer Laureate,” with violist Saskia Meijs; Chennai, India’s Mandolin U Rajesh and his band DHRUVAplaying Carnatic classical music; contemporary Mexican jazz band Troker; Peruvian ukulele star Emanuel Rivera, Argentine soul singers Fémina; and Brazil’s supreme heavy metal bassist Felipe Andreoli.

Closing out the day will be a special performance from BJ Griffin, a pioneering singing and performing cellist.

From the US, Griffin will share his musical stylings and expand the boundaries of musicians to conjure even more possibilities to spread the joy of learning and making music.
