Global Rhythms – 3 days
Genre: Folklore, Punk, Funk, Rock, Roots
Outreach Dates: May 11 - 13
Format: M.A.K.U. Soundsystem is an immigrant band now hailing from New York City, sharing their powerful performance lineage with the Asheville community through music that combines authentic Columbian Folklore and Caribbean grooves. During their dynamic performances, M.A.K.U. Sound system explores how multicultural communities can grow together through a positive perspective encompassing love, hardships, and the embracing of different cultures. Their various musical backgrounds allow them to truly exemplify the idea of World Fusion and bring together a diverse room of listeners through their empowering sound. M.A.K.U. Sound system brings their unique collaborative way of life to each performance, as well as to this workshop, where students will learn about the immigrant experience, the power of art in the lives of everyday people, and the “D.I.Y.” lifestyle involved in composing and performing music. Youth performance at LEAF is Saturday, May 14th, 11 a.m. at Lakeside Stage.
