ETHNO GERMANY is a project of Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland (JMD) and Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI). For one week, young musicians from all over the world come together to learn and teach traditional music from all over the world.

ETHNO invites young people from different nations and cultures to join in making music based on the traditional music of their home countries in a free and open-minded way. ETHNO addresses young musicians of the traditional folk and jazz scene as well as musicians with a classical orientation who are looking for new and refreshing motivation. ETHNO is a unique combination of workshops, jam sessions, and performances in which the participants get to know a variety of musical styles and, with the support of the artistic leader, invent new tunes of their own. ETHNO means to live and learn together in the way of oral music traditions passed on directly from person to person. ETHNO is a program of Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) aiming for intercultural understanding that also enables encounters with Arab, African, and Asian regions. ETHNO takes place regularly in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Great Britain, Estonia, France, Croatia, Macedonia, Sweden, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Uganda, Cyprus—and since 2013 in Germany! ETHNO is being continuously and with great dedication developed by the Ethno Committee of JMI. The Committee connects all Ethno initiatives worldwide.
