Glasgow teenagers' African collaboration for Commonwealth tunes
Young people from Tollcross worked with musicians from Ghana, Tanzania, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.
Budding young songwriters in Glasgow have recorded two songs to celebrate the Commonwealth Games.
The teenagers at Tollcross YMCA worked with musicians from Ghana, Tanzania, Nigeria and Sierra Leone to create songs which they hope will spread a positive message to other young people and raise money for charity.
Organisers plan to roll out the project in local schools after the summer holidays to teach pupils about daily life in other parts of the world.
The songs mix African music with traditional Scottish sounds and the group hope to send out a message of welcome and togetherness as the Commonwealth Games comes to Glasgow in two weeks.
One of the musicians was Olumide Fadeyibi, of G Town Media Productions. He said:"There is a mix of culture there. Africa is a continent so different countries that have never sung together are coming together to do this song."
