MIMA Presents is a concert series that celebrates global music traditions in support of MIMA arts education and music improvisation programs in under-served schools. This inaugural concert on October 12th will be headlined by Afrobeat legend, Antibalas, who was most recently critically-acclaimed as the house band for the Broadway hit FELA! Opening for Antibalas will be Tuelo + Her Cousins, a seven-piece band comprised of MIMA’s Teaching Artists and fronted by soulful South African musician Tuelo Minah. To date, MIMA has completed successful training programs in 25 different countries and operates music programs in 6 schools across New York City. The goal of MIMA Presents: Surround Sounds Brooklyn is to raise $10,000 to bring ongoing music programs to an additional 4 schools in the New York City area by Spring 2014.
