World Music Café Documentary Episode 2 now live

The World Music Café team in Perth Western Australia have released their second documentary featuring artists of Southern Asian heritage, including Praashekh Borkar and Avra Banerjee from India and Rajeev Fernando and the De Silva family band from Sri Lanka, plus First Nations artist Olman Walley, and interviews with the World Music Café team.
The 30-minute film reflects contemporary Australia through the lens of the World Music Café events with many diverse cultural diasporas celebrating creativity and connection with stories, food and music.
World Music Café is a multi-year recipient of the Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grant Program, supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and is currently producing a series of four documentaries over 2022 and 2023.
The World Music Café documentary is produced and co-directed by Jon Cope, co-directed, filmed, and edited by Genevieve Cooper of Joy of Colour Media, with production consultancy by Graeme Sward.
“It’s great to document the growing connection and creative harmony of our culturally diverse artists and crew and share this authentic example of contemporary Australian culture with an international audience,” said World Music Café facilitator, Jon Cope.
World Music Café was created in 2019 by community organisation Multicultural Futures as a social enterprise, with community partner United in Diversity, that provides social and economic integration for WMC team members of new migrant and refugee backgrounds. It has been described by the University of Western Australia’s Centre for Social Impact as ‘An Oasis of Integration in Our Country’.
