About Us

ABOUT Remix ⟷ Culture (RC)
Our Mission is to co-create spaces of belonging and mutual support by collaboratively documenting and remixing underrepresented traditional musicians and their communities’ stories.

Our Calling
A community’s traditional music is its tether to the collective wisdom of past generations. Digital remix expands our imagination into a future of all possibilities. Film and storytelling move us to connect more deeply with each other. Collaboration reminds us we are greater than the sum of our parts. We harmonize these expressions to elevate underrepresented communities while building more sustainable and equitable human relationships. Find out how here.

WORKPLACE DESCRIPTION
Our workplace is a dynamic hybrid environment that combines virtual and in-person communication channels. We oscillate between Zoom meetings, emails, phone calls, and other virtual communication methods, as well as being out there in real life doing the heart of our work. We collaborate with traditional musicians and remix artists in various settings, including through in-person artist residencies we facilitate and live events that we bring to the public. Our project began in Morocco and has expanded to many countries worldwide. However, for the last couple of years, we have been focusing on building a community in New York City, and plan to continue doing so for at least another year before expanding to other communities worldwide.
