MUSOS IN TUNE WITH THE STREET
STREET musicians have the chance to pit their skills against the world’s best in a competition being run by Toyota. Known as Feeling the Street, street musicians can upload videos — for the next seven weeks — to feelingthestreet.com, showing them playing an original song live in a street location. The public can vote for their favourite performers by throwing (virtual) money into the hats of the musicians they like best. In mid-June, the six winning musicians will come together to form a new Global Street Band and travel to New Zealand for a nine-day tour. They will be joined by six voters who will be selected to travel as roadies with the band.
