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 consists of a two-week Residency, when Fellows create original material and develop workshop ideas to engage local communities, and a two-week Tour, when Fellows give performances, collaborate with local musicians and lead workshops with youth and communities groups. OneBeat Fellows work with a diverse group of expert Collaborating Artists—including luminaries of classical music, hip-hop, jazz and more—to develop and deepen the scope of their collaborative work.
