More information about The World’s Music at Oxford 

The World's Music at Oxford is a project run and supported by St John's College at the University of Oxford, which blends research into global musics with live performance. Our concerts are open to all students of the University and members of the general public. We stream all of our events online so you can continue to enjoy some of the world's most exciting artists from the comfort of your home. 

The project, created in 2016, is run by postgraduate students researching a wide range of global musics. It aims to provide a platform for voices and musical styles rarely heard in Oxford and to build new links between the University and the general public. 

Our events showcase renowned performers from the UK and abroad. During the performances, the musicians also explain the characteristics and contexts of the works they perform. 

The World's Music at Oxford is generously supported by St John's College. We are also grateful to the AHRC-TORCH Graduate Fund, the St John's College MCR, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Oxford University Music Faculty for previous support.
