Comments: Join OneBeat musicians for an evening of astonishingly eclectic original music from the Goema sounds of Cape Town to the mountains songs of Kyrgyzstan. OneBeat musicians, including New Olreans-born and raised bassist Martin Masakowski, will share the evening with local favorites Derrick Freeman’s SOUL Brass Band. Now in its fifth year, OneBeat brings together musical leaders from around the world each fall to create original work and develop a global network of civically engaged music initiatives. A program of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation, OneBeat employs collaborative original music as a potent new form of cultural diplomacy. New Orleans is the first stop of the 2016 OneBeat tour, where this group of 25 ear-bending musical change-makers from 16 countries around the world is taking up residence at Ace Hotel for a week's worth of collaborative workshops, rehearsals and performances with local musicians and youth. www.1beat.org
