Rafael Leonelli Oropeza, MUSSAL

Date grant awarded: October 29, 2016

MUSSAL is a project created by the classical guitarist Rafael Leonelli, which seeks to offer free workshops focused on the rescue of traditional Mexican music in order to establish music libraries in small communities of Mexico to preserve musical traditions and so they can be transmitted generation to generation. Music has become the voice of the people and the culture that is currently in resistance, fighting to preserve their identity, confronting capitalism with the fire of community.
