OneBeat is a new international cultural exchange by the U.S. Department of State that celebrates the transformative power of the arts through the creation of original, inventive music, and people-to-people diplomacy. In September 2012, 32 musicians (ages 19-35) from around the world will come together in the U.S. for four weeks to collaboratively write, produce, and perform new music. The group will also lead engagement events with local youth, and develop strategies for using music to make a positive impact on our local and global communities.
