About Rhythms of the World
Led by volunteers, Rhythms of the World (ROTW) is a registered charity that aims to unite diverse communities through music and the arts. We achieve this by organising a range of cultural events, culminating in an annual festival of world music, dance, arts and cuisine in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
Here’s a taste of the Rhythms of the World festival from 2011:
We bring elements of the Rhythms of the World ethos to people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the event’s spirit through our Rhythms of the World Community Outreach Programme. It is one of our charitable objectives to provide a stimulus to the arts in the region and we aim to involve people from across the community – different ages, races, backgrounds, abilities and musical tastes. Our Community Outreach Programme involves local schools and community groups in the arts, whilst our events entitled Rhythms of the World Presents take the festival ethos to a wider audience through a range of musical performances.
