OneBeat Russia will arrive to Moscow this weekend. The event brings together nine socially engaged musicians from Russia and the United States to compose, create and perform original music, and explore ways that music-making can build community across cultural and geographic divides.
OneBeat Russia is comprised of three one-week residencies, starting in the medieval city of Suzdal, continuing to Sviyazhsk Island and Kazan in Tatarstan, and ending with a week in Moscow, co-organized by Ground Khodynka.
Our one-of-a-kind ensemble will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Stravinsky’s ‘L’Histoire du Soldat,’ reimagining the work entirely while drawing inspiration from its original intent to use the power of myth and folk tales to bring art and music to people from all walks of life. Conversely, OneBeat Russia draws the sounds and stories of the public into the art world. In addition to performances and workshops, OneBeat Russia fellows and staff will produce original recordings, music videos, photos and social media to share the experience with wider audiences.
In times of challenged US-Russia relations, this program emphasizes the creative connections and enduring good will between the people and artistic communities of the United States and Russia.
