Global sounds deliver anti-racism message

Anti racism gig
16 December 2008


Rock n Roll guitar and hypnotic Sri-Lankan rhythms, were among the melting pot of sounds at an anti-racism concert, held at Aston University’s Student Guild.

The gig, organised by Aston University’s Live Music Society, featured talented Aston student and staff acts, including local Indie rock groups, Nerve Centre and Duller In Colour; Aston Sri Lankan Society and an acoustic set from Ben Lerman.

The aim was to raise funds for Love Music Hate Racism – a UK wide movement, which uses music as a medium to bring together and unite different races and cultures.
Event Organiser, Aston Receptionist and Nerve Centre front man, Ronan Fitzgerald, said the event was ideally suited for Aston students and Birmingham’s diverse cultural heritage.

“Aston welcomes a diverse body of students from different cultures, both locally, from across the UK, and the world.
“I thought if we could combine the music from the different societies at Aston alongside local bands, that we could create a really imaginative line-up of global music featuring midlands- based musicians. The event proved to be a real success and has brought a wealth of different cultures together. Our aim is to make this gig a regular feature on Aston’s musical calendar.”
