Welcome to the web presence of the Unity Rural Music Project!


Over the past few months, we’ve been gearing up for a summer full of music camps and performances around rural Southwest China, and things have been getting busier and busier. David and Los Pirates Del Montes (a side project by members of the Umoja Orchestra) recently embarked on a tour of schools in rural Sichuan. From what I hear, a couple of musically inclined Tibetan herders have decided to tag along. Pictures forthcoming.



About unitymp

The Unity Rural Music Project was initiated in February 2010 by two Fulbright scholars conducting research in Chengdu. Our mission is to address issues of education development in rural China by organizing a series of music-themed summer camps in Sichuan and Guangxi Provinces. Through these camps, we will provide participating schools with instruments, textbooks and teacher training, helping them lay the foundation for sustainable music programs of their own. Additionally, the camps will provide a valuable opportunity for cultural exchange between students and instructors, providing students a chance to learn and interact with musicians and role models from urban China and abroad.
