Bang on a Can's Found Sound Nation and the Global Lives Project present OneBeatSF, a music-media event at Public Works featuring 25 artists from 17 countries around the world mixing melodies, vocals and beats against the backdrop of Global Lives: Transit-video installations on the perpetual motion of our world, from Colombia to Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Malawi and more.

A one-of-a-kind audio-video jam, performances at OneBeatSF are a dynamic re-imagining of 'world music' - with works created exclusively for this event via a seven-day convergence of artists and musicians brought to the Bay Area to collaboratively compose, produce, and perform original music and develop strategies for social engagement through music. Hailing from Egypt to Venezuela, this year's fellows include DJs and traditional instrumentalists, experimenters, indie-rockers, and more. This cohort includes: Lara Klaus, a percussionist and educator from Recife, Brazil; Fidel Kilic, a singer-songwriter and composer from Istanbul, Turkey; Peni Rini, an experimental vocalist from Java, Indonesia; Abdellah Hassak, a producer and organizer from Casablanca, Morocco; Dahlak Brathwaite, a Los Angeles-based MC and educator; and 20 other innovative musicians from an incredibly wide breadth of genres and backgrounds.

OneBeatSF's performance at Public Works is followed by roving "pop-up" OneBeatSF performances and video-shoots throughout the Bay Area on Saturday, October 18th in collaboration with the creative agency, Projector, and OneBeat at Montalvo on Sunday, October 19 from 11am-4pm at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga (15400 Montalvo Road).

OneBeatSF is sponsored by OneBeat, the touring music residency initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Cultural and Educational Affairs, and is produced by Bang on a Can's Found Sound Nation with Compound, and presented with The Global Lives Project's Global Wednesday's event series.
