In Ethno camps, participants teach traditional and folk music of their cultures to each other. The idea of Ethno is to increase understanding and respect towards other people and cultures, as well as to give chance for young musicians to develop musically and create networks over borders. The first Ethno music camp was organized in Sweden in 1989. Since then Ethno has grown worldwide including now over 20 countries.
