So I went to Argentina! The Leadership course organizes some international placements for their students and this year both year 1, year 2 and some other Guildhall students had the opportunity to go to La Plata for two weeks. The activity was hosted by Colectivo La Sonora and had four main aspects: Candombe Percussion, Tango, community work and folkore music and dance.
Together with other 7 students we spent an amazing fortnight with two weeks full of music, strong emotions, intensive experiences, “multi-culti” moments, shared learning, and loads of music making that culminated in a concert in La Plata in the last night.

A word of thank you to everyone who made this experience possible:
