Dutch Rock Academy to work with youth from Kosovo flashpoint city From August 22 to 29, 34 young Kosovo musicians will travel to Skopje, Macedonia, for a summer rock music school led by six Dutch rock music trainers from the Fontys Rock Academy. The young participants are from Mitrovica, Kosovo, a city where war and ethnic conflict have left a rigid divide between ethnic Serbs and Albanians.  On Friday August 27, all participants will perform at an open-air concert in Skopje’s popular City Park. During the week preceding the concert, the Mitrovica youth will form ethnically mixed bands, choose songs and band names and prepare a major show together.

Mitrovica Rock School

After several years of hard work, CBM and its partners Musicians without Borders and Fontys Rock Academy in Tilburg are proud to present the Mitrovica Rock School! The school opened its doors on 7th October 2008, and teaches youths from north and south Mitrovica the art of rock music.

CBM focus area: Culture

Before the war, Mitrovica enjoyed a reputation as a city of culture; music, theatre and art were part of the heart of the city. Various famous artists, singers and bands had Mitrovica as their breeding ground. CBM aims to contribute to rebuilding Mitrovica’s cultural life through various projects, activities and festivals. Particularly, music is a universal language which we hope will bring young people from all ethnicities together. After several years of hard work, we are proud to announce that the Mitrovica Rock School has finally opened its doors; talented young musicians and bands from north and south Mitrovica take their musical education to a higher level and play their music together from Mitrovica to Skopje (and beyond).
