‘Amazing Grace’ with a message from Jason Carter

A message from Jason Carter to his friends in Al Ain…

Dear friends

It has been a while since I made a new music video due to working more in film. Recently I was transferring files over from an old hard drive and somehow lost an album that I was working on but I did manage to recover this track so I thought I would make a music video for it!

For those of you who are interested in my film activities please follow the links below. I am of course still playing and developing new material and will be sharing news soon about future concerts and collaborations.

Greetings from Karachi, Pakistan!

With best wishes from Jason Carter

Jason Carter’s 10 Days in North Korea -video & book

Jason Carter, one of the star performers at the AAMF 2015, sent the following message…

Dear friends,

 I decided to make a short video response to the situation in North Korea. Some of you will know that I spent 10 days in Pyongyang giving concerts there and this response is based upon my experience as a musician and music as a platform for intercultural dialogue.

A book will follow in the next couple of weeks, which aims to give a slightly different perspective based upon my experiences in North Korea. Info on the book will follow shortly.

Thanks in advance for watching and please feel free to share!

 With best wishes from Jason Carter
