Whispers – Ha Orchestra

This new music video, produced by local production company Showmanmedia in conjunction with the CATC Hub, was filmed in Glasgow University’s beautiful cloisters. It showcases HA Orchestra, the first African orchestra in Scotland. Playing instruments from various African traditions in a Scottish context, HA embodies a vibrant example of creative, multimodal translation practice in action.  Enjoy!
