Help Orkestar Bez Ime raise funds for tuition to Amala, a Romani cultural immersion school located in Serbia.
In 2011, Orkestar Bez Ime, which is based in Minneapolis, MN, was honored with a McKnight Artist Fellowship for Performing Musicians, administered by MacPhail Center for Music.
Using the cash prize from this esteemed fellowship, OBI will be traveling to Serbia this summer to study at Amala, a school dedicated to the music, language, and dance of the Roma culture—widely known as Gypsy. Amala School is located in Valjevo, 100 kilometers southwest of Belgrade, and presents the unique opportunity to discover Romani and Serbian culture, music and dance in an authentic setting. This study trip represents OBI’s first opportunity to travel together and learn alongside one another.
The plane tickets have been purchased, but OBI still needs help raising tuition funds so that all six members may attend Amala. Your financial support will help us in our goal to travel together and learn the music and culture of the Romani people. We will greatly appreciate any donation you have to offer.
