Welcome to The Travel Songs Foundation, where we believe in the transformative power of music to bridge cultures, connect hearts, and inspire positive change. Our mission is simple yet profound: "Connecting Cultures Through Music."
At The Travel Songs Foundation, we are passionate advocates for music and musicians around the world. We understand the universal language of music and its ability to transcend borders, languages, and differences. Through various initiatives and projects, we actively work to promote and preserve the rich tapestry of global musical traditions, while nurturing the next generation of musicians and music enthusiasts.
Education Documentary Films: We believe in the power of storytelling to create awareness and appreciation for diverse musical cultures. In 2015, we raised $15,000 to produce the award-winning documentary "Travel Songs: Peru." This captivating film takes you on a journey through the heart of Peru, showcasing its rich musical heritage, artists, and traditions.
Instrument-Building Schools: In 2017, we raised $12,000 to establish a school in Cusco, Peru, where young people have the opportunity to learn the art of crafting traditional instruments. This not only preserves valuable cultural heritage but also empowers local communities to sustain their musical traditions for generations to come.
Music Education: We are committed to making music education accessible to everyone. In 2018, we released an educational documentary about instruments in Peru, which has now become an integral part of the curriculum in higher education institutions. This initiative is helping students worldwide to understand the cultural significance and craftsmanship behind musical instruments.
Community Studios: Music has the power to transform lives, and we aim to make it accessible to all. We secured a federal grant to establish a community music studio in an underserved area, providing a free and inclusive space for people to learn, create, and share their musical talents.
At The Travel Songs Foundation, we are united by a love for music and a shared vision of a world where cultures are celebrated through harmonious melodies. Join us on this extraordinary journey of Connecting Cultures Through Music. Together, we can create a more harmonious and interconnected world.
