Beat Making Lab, Goma, Congo

A brief video on the Goma, Congo Beat Making Lab is an inspiring promotion for the PBS Digital Studios digital music Beat Making Lab project.

Beat Making Lab is an electronic music studio small enough to fit in a backpack. We build Labs in collaboration with communities all around the world; donating laptops, microphones and software. Our goal is to create positive social impact by giving youth the tools and training to make beats and songs.

Our innovative curriculum, founded at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, teaches open source music production and entrepreneurship.

Each lab consists of a two-week residency at a local community organization, where young people acquire skills to professionalize their creative practices and become part of a global DIY digital music community.
