So Kendrick Lamar dropped in on our Hip Hop Workshop. A group of 46 young musicians were left speechless on 11 March when seven times Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar walked into a Brighter Sound hip hop workshop and joined them in a freestyle MC jam. Here are some of our favourite pictures from this great event.

Snarky Puppy are just about to set off on their UK-wide tour, including a sold out gig in Manchester. A couple of years ago we invited them to lead a music residency for a bunch of emerging musicians as part of our Wall of Sounds programme with Band on the Wall. Since then, the group of musicians have gone on to form their own band Hans Prya, and some of them now perform with Snarky Puppy.
Last month a group of young people from around the world joined together at the Harmonise Music Residency to create new music and explore different cultures. Their showcase performance was outstanding – an inspirational expression of creativity. Check out more picture moments from our projects here.
We brought lots of talented young musicians from across Manchester and the North West together to make a brand new album in a day. The creative musicians made up of singers, instrumentalists, DJs, beatboxers and producers worked together to write, perform and record original material.
