Music Exchange Opportunity in the U.S. – Year 2013

Music Exchange Opportunity in the U.S. – Year 2013

(In partnership with the U.S Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs)


A music residency and tour program that brings together innovative young musicians (ages 19-35) from around the world to collaboratively create and perform new music, and develop ways music can make a positive impact on our communities. Please visit to see videos and photos of our amazing 2012 OneBeat Fellows performances and workshops. Now we are looking forward to an even better 2013 program, and we’d love your help!

Starting December 17, we are accepting applications from innovative, socially-committed musicians to apply to become 2013 OneBeat Fellows. Our mission is to create a space for collaboration across cultural divides, so we invite musicians from all backgrounds: hip-hop, traditional, experimental, electronic, jazz, classical, sound and multimedia art, and more. And thanks to support from our sponsors, OneBeat is a FREE program, with Fellows travel, housing, and food costs covered.

The month-long OneBeat 2013 program will run from September 9 to October 6, and consists of a creative residency and a tour up the east coast of the US. During the residency, OneBeat Fellows will form small ensembles to compose original work, record in the state-of-the-art OneBeat mobile studio, and prepare for performances and educational workshops. On tour, the Fellows will perform the music they have developed, jam with local musicians, and lead interactive workshops for local youth and community groups.

If you are an adventurous musician looking for a chance to collaborate with other like-minded musicians from around the world, please consider applying. If you are a radio DJ, arts administrator, label manager, music fan, social media buff, or anything else, please help us spread the word to musicians in your community in Myanmar/Burma!
