European Week Against Racism(EWAR) runs from 13th to 21st March, where thousands of people actively engage in activities to promote and celebrate equal rights and the diversity of Europe. The week centres around 21 March which was declared International Day for the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination by the United Nations as a response to the murder of 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa in 1960.

This year LoveMusic HateRacism be kicking EWAR off on the 13th of March @ Le Cirk, Dame St , Dublin 2. And with 3 floors of live music and Djs,and a little spoken work ,it's promising to to be a real celebration of music and diversity.

Acts supporting the European Week Against Racism Launch are...

NORTH STRAND KONTRA BAND
The North Strand Kontra Band (formerly the north strand klezmer band) have been a welcome addition to the live music scene in Ireland ever since they first emerged in the winter of 2005. Performing original music influenced by various genres and styles, most notably that of the Balkans, their line up includes...Clarinet, Saxophone, Trombone, Piano Accordion, Banjo/Guitar, Tuba and Drums.

ZEALOTS
Their sound has been compared to Depeche mode, Interpol, Stereo Lab and Wire although it is difficult to pinpoint a direct influence. Theirs is an undeniably unique concoction. Ruth Kennington's angelic vocals drape over sound scapes that can shift from expansively liberating to claustrophobicly paranoid. The Zealots have had rapturous responses from the growing crowds at home and away and are steadily building a loyal fan base. The gigs are intense, energetic, vibrant and above all else ...loud.

KATET
KaTet are a young, up and coming 3 piece from the west of Ireland that deliver a punch or rock and roll that remind a crowd that it is not in fact dead. Utilizing their voices and instruments, these young fellows have blown away unsuspecting audiences across the country in the last 12 months and even earned themselves a spot at this year’s Electric Picnic

GROOVALIZACION DJ'S
Groovalizacion is a music lab, a meeting place and one of cultural exchange. Its doors are wide open to the curious kind eager to try the cocktail a la Groovalizacion, rich in flavours and ingredients collected along the way and the different latitudes. It’s a torrid, fun and passionate atmosphere which will take you from São Paulo to Casablanca, Berlin to Dakar, Bombay to Buenos-Aires, Hong-Kong to la Havana...

FARRAGO West African Percussion
Farrago is a Dublin based group of 6 percussionists who united to explore their mutual passion for the ancient art of West African. Percussion Farrago's members come Ireland, UK, France, and USA.

WORRIES OUTERNATIONAL with Guests

GAVIN MEE
Whether its a song about a quirky choir with belly dancers, revolving conductors and tap dancing altos , or a step by step guide to going in search of a New Year’s kiss, seduction in the west of Ireland, or a hair product that isn't commercial enough to have a jingle written about it so he wrote one , Gavin wants to bring the audience into his anecdote and one that they can relate to like a jovial conversation after a few liquors.

RICHBEA
RichBea (aka Subway Mike) is a dj who loops, scratch's, & surprises the listener through the cosmos of funk, soul, hip-hop, disco, world, & party grooves.With more than one residency in Dublin , RichBea's selections are known to make you drop your glasses and shake your....

Cah-44
Performance Poet Cah-44 has been living in a ramshackle post-Gorey house in North Dublin with an international rotating collective of a dubious, if opaque, nature. He needs a cat. But no mere cat. Perhaps a meercat.
