OneBeat brings musicians from around the world for a residency and tour program in the U.S. OneBeat is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation.
OneBeat is an international cultural exchange that celebrates the transformative power of the arts through the creation of original, inventive music, and people-to-people diplomacy.
OneBeat brings young musicians (ages 19-35) from around the world to the U.S. for one month to collaboratively write, produce, and perform original music, and develop ways that music can make a positive impact on our local and global communities.
OneBeat begins with a two-week Residency, when Fellows create original material, record new musical ideas, and develop workshops to engage local communities. This is followed by a two-week Tour, when Fellows give performances, collaborate with local musicians and lead workshops with youth and communities groups.
