“Ham’avaaz – Polyphonic” is a transcultural music project, funded by the Erasmus+ adult education programme, which aims to enhance the creativity and self-efficacy of adult learners in the areas of basic education and (second) language learning.

It aims to create an inclusive and diverse learning atmosphere in which learners work together on pieces of music, song lyrics, melodies and rhythms.

At the same time, the results present innovative possibilities for working with vocabulary and linguistic structures in the learners’ second language. Although there are already numerous links between language acquisition and music education, our project idea began with the conviction that there is a lack of music-based teaching ideas that are orientated towards the needs of educationally disadvantaged adults.

The Persian project title Ham’avaaz has a double meaning: on the one hand, it refers to singing together; on the other hand, it expresses that two people come to an agreement on a matter. Even if musical tastes are debatable, music has proven to be an effective tool for bringing people together in dialogue.
