We are excited to announce that we'll be bringing a whole new group of international musicians to Montalvo this October for a 2-week residency followed by a culminating performance festival.

The boundary-breaking fellows of OneBeat come from 17 different countries and territoriesincluding the U.S., Russia, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Venezuela, and more. Each has a compelling story, and they range from experimental producers to deeply-rooted traditional virtuosi to indie-rockers to acrobat/activists.
This years roster includes Ng Chor Guan, a sound designer, composer, and environmentalist from Kuala Lampur, Malaysia; Jorge Peña, a producer on the forefront of Cubas experimental electronic music scene; Dragana Tomić, a vocalist and ethnomusicologist from Belgrade, Serbia; Vieux Cissokho, a Senegalese Griot musician specializing in the kora; and Katherine Suavita Niño, a circus performer and accordionist from Bogotá, Colombia, who works with communities affected by violence. And that's just a few of them!
The festival on October 25 is free to the public, and will feature individual and group performances throughout the afternoon and all around our scenic grounds. There will also be food trucks, beer & wine, and a variety of interactive musical activities.
If you came to see last year's OneBeat festival, you know how amazing this day is. So join our Facebook event and invite your friends! You can also learn more about the performers and follow the OneBeat journey by visiting 1beat.org.
