Sounds of the Mediterranean

Sounds of the Mediterranean The countries bordering on the Mediterranean Sea, from Spain in the west to Syria in the east, from France and Italy in the north to Libya and Egypt in the south, have long contributed to the multicultural and ethnic mix that now makes Christchurch such a vibrant city. The aim of this programme is to reflect and explore the cultural heritage that migrants from these places bring to Christchurch. It will do this through the popular and folk music traditions of these countries, bringing the sounds and voices of the Mediterranean to our city. Denis Walker, the presenter of Sounds of the Mediterranean, has worked for Plains FM for a number of years as a co-presenter of Cartolina, the programme about Italian life and culture. Formerly he taught English Literature at the University of Canterbury and now in retirement divides his time between the calm life of Banks Peninsula and the chaotic city life of Rome. He has a lifelong passion for music of all kinds and in this programme he will present his personal choice of music from around the Mediterranean. Show Less
