Oh Europa

Oh Europa is a labour of love; an act of collective listening that spans a continent and cuts straight to the heart.

Since 2018, artists Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse have been travelling through Europe in their campervan, asking strangers to sing a love song.

Throughout an entire day, Gemma & James invite you to join them in an epic deep-listening experience as they play every single love song they have recorded to date: over a thousand voices singing in 49 languages. Broadcasting live and online via their RadiOh Europa station, these love songs transmit a heartfelt message: an opportunity to hear our voices emerge out of the white noise.

Find the Oh Europa campervan-recording studio around Edinburgh on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 August to add your love song to the collection.

All voices are welcome!

The Refuge series is supported by British Council, Edinburgh Futures Institute at theUniversity of Edinburgh and Claire and Mark Urquhart

Made possible through the PLACE programme
