OneBeat Brings Global Collaboration to Albuquerque

Oct 12, 2014

Hope Masike of Zimbabwe is one of the OneBeat artists this year.

  Albuquerque native Chris Marianetti, co-founder of Found Sound Nation, talks with Global Music host Megan Kamerick about OneBeat, a new model of cultural diplomacy that brings 25 musicians from 17 countries to the U.S. for one month. They work collaboratively to produce, compose and perform original music and develop strategies for social engagement through music.

They begin in California with a two-week residency, then go on tour, ending in Albuquerque, first for a jam session on October 30th at Sister Bar, then for the culmination at the Albuquerque Railyards on November 1, which will include art and video installations. Find out more about that event at 516 ARTS. Find out more about OneBeat online.
