The International Cultural Exchange Programs kicks off on February 18-27 to benefit non-profit charity organizations for HIV/AIDS in Africa. The workshop is a youth empowerment program that creates a source of inspiration for 60 high risk and/or under privilege youngsters between the ages of 15 and 18 years who have never played drums before to learn to play percussion from Willie Stewart, former percussionist of the acclaimed international group “Third World” and leads them into the confidence to perform music from Africa, Trinidad, Jamaica, Brazil and Cuba at the F.A.C.E Award Dinner 2014.
They will be joined by 20 professional international musicians and artists in two unforgettable performances they’ll cherish forever as their families and community watch as they perform before a large audience promising a renewal of interest that is essential for building team work, self esteem, problem solving and critical thinking skills.
