Ever a band keen to have their music connect far and wide beyond the usual circuits, Zun Zun Egui have spent the past week undertaking a series of community music workshops with prisoners, elderly dementia patients and pupils with special needs.
Organised by Superact, a not-for-profit arts organisation that uses the arts to inspire communities and individuals, the band have visited The Verne Prison in Weymouth, Abbeyfield Care Home in Taunton and Ellen Tinkham School in Exeter, learning how to deliver bespoke music therapy workshops before meeting and working with the inmates, patients and students themselves.
The week culminates with a show at the Bikeshed Theatre in Exeter on Saturday (Sep 15) as part of Acoustica Festival, more info here. They then play a hometown show at Brisfest (Sep 22), before heading out on European tour with Dirty Three in November – full list of dates here.
