Musicians from Scotland, Kenya and India have performed a world premiere as part of Aberdeen International Youth Festival.
The Scokendia Ensemble – part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme – saw a composer from each nation commissioned to write music capturing their country’s musical traditions and heritage.
The 26 musicians are made up of young professionals, students from conservatoires, members of the national youth orchestras of Scotland, Kenya and India and young musicians from outreach projects.
Earlier this week, the group entertained revellers at Queens Cross Church, Mark Bush Court sheltered housing and the Acorn Centre in Inverurie.
Scottish tenor Jamie Munn, 27, who managed the project, said: “We thought it would be great to get musicians together from these countries because they all have such a strong musical heritage. It’s a celebration of the different cultures of the Commonwealth.”
