David Lyttle, Emmy the Great and Quinta are the next musicians to take part in an international residency in China.
The British Council and PRS for Music Foundation have announced that the three musicians will spend up to six weeks in China as part of the Musicians in Residence programme.
The selected artists will spend time in three separate cities: Guiyang, Suzhou and Xiamen where they will collaborate with local artists and explore new creative opportunities.
The immersive programme will provide all three with an opportunity to create original work, build networks and explore new international influences.
Vanessa Reed, PRS for Music Foundation’s executive director, said: ‘I am delighted that together with British Council we are supporting David Lyttle, Emmy The Great and Quinta, three very talented and acclaimed music creators, to have this fantastic international opportunity, to create new music and build new international networks.
‘I look forward to following how this experience contributes both to their creative development and their potential to reach new audiences.’
Previous participants in the scheme have included Imogen Heap, Matthew Bourne, Mira Calix and Jamie Woon.
