Mendi Singh, the well known tabla player, has been working with a group of visually impaired service users in the Visual Dimension project.
They recently presented a showcase of what they’ve been learning over an eight week period, making music with everyday objects. Mendi Singh helps people gain confidence with music making by supporting them to make up different rhythms for performance.
Visual Dimension is a group of Feel Good Factor service users from Ethnically Diverse Communities with a visual impairment. The BBC radio programme In Touch came to find out more, and you can listen here (at around the 12 minute mark) on iPlayer.
There’s also a link here to Opera North’s Twitter feed showing film of Mendi and the group in action.
Find out more about the project from Tracey Nicholls, Sensory Impairment Development Worker (Ethnically Diverse Communities), firstname.lastname@example.org.
