Ethno is a platform to build respect and tolerance, to preserve cultural heritage and to ensure that traditional, popular and world music lives among young people and is transmitted from generation to generation. It broadens and deepens the relationships between musicians and cultures around the world, allowing participants to build a greater mutual appreciation of their respective cultures through music. Ethno uses music as a powerful tool to combat xenophobia, intolerance and racism.

It is the largest non-profit organization in the world that helps young people through music.

JMI uses the universal power of music as a tool for empowerment and transformation, seeking to make the world a better place for everyone. For us it is a real honor and pride to be able to bring Ethno Camp to Switzerland for the first time.
