Are you a musician residing in Finland? Have you heard that there are possibilities to get support and funding for you operations but do not know what to do and how to apply? Perhaps you moved to Finland only recently and you do not know the system yet – or you have already lived here a good while but it's still one big mystery? Is the language the big problem? Would you simply just like to discuss music making with colleagues and strengthen your network, or just share your thoughts and ideas? Please come to GMC Living Room Session.

Our very special guest is musician Sadollah Nasiri (saz, vocals) from Kurdistan. He'll lead us to a workshop and is also available for question&answer session. The visit is hosted by musician Marouf Majidi.

Mr Nasiri is currently on tour in the Baltic Countries. Here is some info about the project:
