In February of 2019, our OneBeat Balkans program brought together socially engaged musicians from Kosovo, Serbia, Albania, Croatia, North Macedonia and the United States to collaboratively create music and multi-disciplinary works, lead public workshops, and use the arts to establish trust and encourage economic development in a divided region. Over the course of three weeks this remarkably diverse and creative crew performed and led workshops in Peja (Kosovo), Tirana (Albania), Pristina (Kosovo), Skopje (North Macedonia), Novi Sad (Serbia), and Zagreb (Croatia).
