1beatmusic "I’ve worked with a lot of musicians in my life, but not in this kind of way. I feel very close to this group because of how we worked together. I used to feel kind of alone in how i think about music, and OneBeat helped me realize that I am not alone. The program gave me a sense of power and community." •

1beatmusic "I was very happy being involved in the community engagement work during OneBeat. I almost got lost in this feeling of doing positive things for others, and for myself, in these activities. I was also so excited to play music with new people, and all for the very first time. The harmony between us was so strong– I felt immediately that we all had something in common." •

lisaliberatore Meet Khadija! She's a single mom/business owner/jewelry designer here in Placencia, Belize! She makes the most beautiful jewelry from local resources, like the lion-fish predator that is threatening the Belizean barrier reef (2nd largest in the world!). I get to work with her here to bring awareness to the issue, increase her business, and empower other women who want to do the same! I am SO excited and of course brought her a matching @31bits necklace to help inspire the work she is doing. #youbetterBelizeit #fashiondiplomacy #culturaldiplomacy #marineconservation 2d

1beatmusic "I play the Syrian biziq, an instrument that doesn't exist in Turkey, even though it originates in this region. My great wish is to make this instrument sustainable, to share its beauty and introduce its full range of styles, from classical to oriental and more. Because there were only a few biziq instrument makers left in Syria, and the last one is gone -- he lost his shop and had to move away -- my wish is more important now than ever. So I plan to learn to build the instrument myself, with the help of instrument-makers in Kadıköy, and to eventually develop a biziq instrument-making workshop where many more will be built." •

1beatmusic "Music and culture cannot be thought of as separate entities. The way we think of music, the way we structure it, listen to it, the environments we create, all differs from culture to culture. Music is a carrier of structures, values, the meanings of culture, so sharing an experience through music means sharing cultural experiences to some extent. As musicians from different cultures, it is a valuable experience to learn from each other and make things together.
Speaking realistically, I believe it is a romanticised idea to believe that music can change the world. But I believe making music collectively with a common goal and sharing it with an audience is a great way to make an impact. What we did during OneBeat created this kind of an impact. Looking at the political climate in Turkey, where discrimination is growing day by day, allowing for a common ground where musicians and audiences from different cultures can come together and "exist" under one roof is very valuable." •

1beatmusic "I am fascinated by sound itself at the micro level of music making; I am driven to play, process, and edit sounds into musical forms. I am also driven by the process of creativity. I like to observe what goes on in this process working alone, but especially the dynamics that come into play when working with others. Collaboration in any form is valuable on its own; it brings together people who have an intention to share, create, and make something on common ground. And if one wishes to make an impact through music, it is only possible with others. It is important to remember that music is made by people, for people." •

1beatmusic "I want to continue to work with young [displaced] children who have found themselves in a brand new place, and try to figure out ways to give them agency in a new world. To make them feel like things are ok, and that none of this is their fault. It’s tough to try to figure out how to do that from New York, but maybe it’s a matter of continuing to engage with OneBeat Fellows in Istanbul, and figuring out how to support them as they develop projects on the ground here."•

1beatmusic "I think the biggest effect this experience has had on me has been contextualizing this part of the world – helping me to understand the situation and conflicts and issues that this region is facing. The media coverage we see in America is not personal, it’s not human. OneBeat has really humanized this for me. And I’m not sure how that’s transformed me other than feeling like a better and more empathetic citizen of the world. But I believe that this is OneBeat doing its job." •
