Our music is the Street Muzik of the future
Dusty Roads is the vow to do things differently from everyone else, to travel paths that have been avoided because of fear or uncertainty.
Through education, exposure, understanding and a deepening of knowledge, all roads will be explored so that the world may celebrate our diversity and fullness of life.
"Celebrating our diversity leads to experience,
experience gives us knowledge,
over time that knowledge has potential to evolve into wisdom
which is true understanding."
