We’re just a few days away from beginning a new chapter of OneBeat. For our fourth Abroad program, OneBeat will land in Latin America. More than 700 musicians from Colombia, Venezuela, and the U.S. applied to be part of our groundbreaking OneBeat Colombia program, which runs May 13th to June 5th. 15 talented fellows will come together in Colombia’s Valle de Cauca region to share their traditions and co-create original music. Following the residency, we will embark on a tour which will include shows and workshops in the Pacific port town of Buenaventura, Cali and Palmira in the Valle de Cauca, and conclude with performances in Bogotá. Our team of staff, facilitators, and collaborating artists consists primarily of Colombian and Venezuelan OneBeat alumni. This adventure is called OneBeat Colombia, and we invite you to join us, whether it be through concerts or by following us online!
