OneBeat, a public-private cultural diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation, has brought together 25 young and adventurous musicians from 17 countries to explore how musical diplomacy can renew and restore perspectives, spaces, and societies during divided times. Sisters is one of only four U.S. cities on OneBeat’s 2017 tour.
This year’s fellows include South African vocalist Nonku Phiri; Aisaana Omorova, a komuz (traditional three-stringed strummed instrument) player from Kyrgyzstan; Chicago-based producer Elijah Jamal; and Belorussian producer and singer Natalia Kuznetskaya.
