OneBeat is a musical journey like no other – it’s a chance for adventurous musicians from wide and diverse traditions to seek common ground, create new musical mixtures, push the boundaries of music technology, find ways to involve all members of society in the creative process, and engage in people-to-people diplomacy. This year’s Fellows hail from Algeria, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Egypt, India, Jordan, Lebanon, Madagascar, Malaysia, Morocco, Pakistan, Senegal, South Africa, Ukraine, the United States, and Zimbabwe. We are so proud to host this amazing group of talented musicians. OneBeat has generously offered to perform at the Timucua White House, at ACA Exposed, and at a concert at the end of their residency. The musicians are also planning community outreach programs at the Babe James Center, NSB Middle School, and Oceanview Nursing Home.
