The U.S. Embassy in Beirut announces the OneBeat program, a two week residency in the United States in September 2012. One Beat is an international music exchange project that brings together musicians from around the world through a residency and tour program focused on creative collaboration and social engagement. This peer exchange will invite young professional musicians to the U.S. to work with their American counterparts in the composition and the performance of new cross-genre works, the creation of innovative recordings & videos, and the development of practices of music as civic and social engagement.

Musicians from all backgrounds and genres are encouraged to apply, with or without formal musical training. The U.S. Embassy will cover the cost of travel, room and board for musicians selected for the program.
