World City Music Village 2014 is the 26th edition of the Music Village festival, Europe's longest running festival of world cultures.  The Festival was created in 1983 by Artistic Directors Prakash Daswani (Cultural Co-operation’s Founder) and the late Robert Atkins, during their time at London’s Commonwealth Institute, 1980-87. In 1987, they set up Cultural Co-operation, a charity that continues to unite people through high quality engagement with the world’s cultural heritage.
