Event Information

This October, a group of musicians from around the globe will spend one week in the Bronx, NY, to work with local residents and businesses owners to create original music. A partnership with Bronx Speaks, a project aimed at giving voice to DACA recipients and immigrant-owned cultural anchors through art, an ensemble of OneBeat musicians will co-create and perform original musical works inspired by stories from the Bronx-based immigrant community. 

These stories will be gathered with and by our Bronx Speaks team, comprised of local DACA recipients and the owner of a Bronx-based African market – Eddie’s Place African Market. A celebration of the incredibly diverse and vibrant borough of the Bronx and its people, this special evening of poetry, storytelling and live performance takes place at the Bronx Museum on Thursday, October 11 at 7pm.

Participants: Alex Salazar
