The World Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to a simple mission: opening minds through Music. We believe, and research shows, that experiencing music of other cultures increases tolerance and cultural empathy in people, and everything that we do is based on effecting this social change. Racism continues to be one of the world’s greatest problems and Music is a proven armament in this fight.
We provide distinctive, global, musical performance and education to urban and rural youth across 9 countries through collaboration with master artists who instruct and inspire students through authentic interactions and presentations of music from cultures outside of their own. Targeted are students with minimal opportunity for exposure to live performance, diversity and education from world artists.
