ToBe Continued is coming back on March 24th, World TB Day,
ToBe Continued is an original concert lasting 24 hours (from 00.00 hours to the midnight of March 24th),
during which musicians from many parts of the World will be connected to a website that will broadcast, live,
their concerts. During this un-interrupted 24 hour marathon (ToBe Continued... in fact) each musician has
at disposal a 30-minute window, thus creating a relay of sounds and rhythms that will range from klezmer
to classical music, from ambient to experimental music, from jazz to ethno. The event, that will cover the
24th of March, World TB Day, in its entirety, is coordinated by Antonio Della Marina, musician and computer
music composer, and by Moreno Miorelli, artistic director of the annual gathering "Stazione di Topolò/Postaja
Topolove". The whole initiative is under the aegis of the Global Health Incubator, the 'laboratory' established
in July 2009 in Topolo' by Mario Raviglione (WHO director of Stop TB Department) to create links between
the world of creativity and that of science.

Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB in English and TBC in Italian) is a curable disease. However, it is often
underestimated, if not totally ignored, as a major human scourge, although it is globally the leading cause
of death from an infectious disease, causing the loss of 1.7 million people each year, 4000 every day, with
thousands of unnecessary victims also in the richest countries every year.
The project ToBe Continued...is also part of the initiatives organized by Stop TB Italia to commemorate
World TB Day. The event has been made possible thanks to Eli Lilly MDR-TB Partnership and the
collaboration with UNIKUM - Culture Centre of the University of Klagenfurt, that will provide the
facilities for the coordination of the concerts.
