Street MuziK &
Pulsing harmonies flowing from the asphalt of crowded sidewalks, pouring out of windows while street musicians perform for a crowd blocks away.
As a reflection of the cultural and musical diversity in Atlanta, Street Muzik ATL aims to produce and promote music relevant to today's society and lifestyle.
The driving force behind Street Muzik is developing and cultivating the next generation of independent artists that will set trends, instead of following them.
Our music is the Street Muzik of the future
My vow to do things differently from everyone else, to travel paths that have been avoided because of fear, ignorance or uncertainty.
Through education, exposure, understanding and a deepening of knowledge, all roads will be explored so that the world may celebrate human 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."
