East meets West


Owen and Olly set off on a global musical adventure meeting furry pandas, Wild West cowboys and African drummers on the way. With a world-class line-up of international musicians this high-energy whistle-stop tour had something for everyone, from the haunting sounds of a Chinese bamboo flute and the romantic strains of a Parisian accordion to the dramatic rhythms of the Argentinian tango and the toe-tapping tunes of a Scottish ceilidh. As always at Children’s Classic Concerts there was fun for all the family with special surprises and lots of joining in. We went around the world in 60 minutes with no passports required!


  • Presented by Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox
