Kenyan Singers Can Apply for OneBeat 2013 Fellowship

OneBeat, an initiative of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is inviting applications from Kenyan musicians aged between 19-35 for next year’s fellowship.

These musicians must demonstrate both an advanced proficiency in their musical work, an interest in cross-genre collaboration, and experience with or interest in developing strategies to use music as a way to improve their communities.

This is a chance for adventurous, socially-committed young musicians looking for a chance to collaborate with other like-minded musicians from around the world.

OneBeat 2013 will take place from September 9 to October 6, and is divided into two segments; a residency and a tour. During the residency, they will spend two weeks at the Atlantic Centre for the Arts in central Florida, immersed in a process of collaborative music creation and experimentation.

During the two-week tour, OneBeat ensembles will collaborate with local musicians to give public performances and lead workshops with youth and community groups.

The fellows will also work with a diverse group of expert collaborating artistes including luminaries of classical music, hip-hop, jazz and more to develop and deepen the scope of their collaborative work.
