Coinciding with the annual Araluen Tulip Festival, the popular Genesis in the Hills restaurant in Roleystone will host two special World Music Café multicultural afternoon concerts on Sunday 13 and 20 September, 12-3pm.

The ‘Lunch and Show’ concerts be an immersive cultural experience featuring diverse musicians living in Perth including Kurdish superstar Mesut Med, multi-awarded Italian-Australian singer songwriter Kavisha Mazzella AM, Afghan musician Asad Alizada, and Persian classical duo Basir Khamooshi and Noura Momtazi.

World Music Café is a social enterprise that assists recently arrived migrants to contribute to their new Australian community by coordinating food and music events celebrating diversity. It is part of the Multicultural Enterprise Development Project ‘Try Test Learn’ partnership with Multicultural Futures and the Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre.

Multicultural Futures and community partner, United in Diversity, have worked collaboratively with participants over the past year to develop the innovative World Music Café cultural business model that fosters employability skills, local work experience and community connections for new migrants.

“We have a brilliant team of really talented people who collectively create the World Music Café events and we are so fortunate to have some fantastic mentors sharing their knowledge and experience with the team,” said social enterprise facilitator, Jon Cope.

“Social connection and participation is incredibly healthy for building a sense of place and a positive community spirit, so we hope the community will come and enjoy these wonderful events,’ said Jon.
