PBS Digital Studios is thrilled to announce a new weekly digital program called Beat Making Lab, a unique music series focused on youth in developing nations around the world. The 20-week series made up of two to three-minute episodes, chronicles a music producer and a UNC Chapel Hill professor as they set up music studios (small enough to fit into a backpack) in The Democratic Republic of Congo, Panama, Senegal and Fiji. Each two-week workshop is designed to nurture local music talent, while providing the tools and techniques to make their own beats. All studio equipment is donated to the community after the sessions wrap up, establishing a permanent music lab for future beat-makers.
"Cho Cho Cho" is the first song and music video produced and written by the youth of Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo. Created in a Beat Making Lab, the song was inspired by a popular call-and-response chant in Goma and the video was filmed during Yole!Africa's SKIFF Festival dance competition.
During the month of May, Beat Making Lab will partner with Global Health organization Intrahealth and Speak Up Africa to set up all-female workshops in Dakar, Senegal. These sessions will showcase the talent of seven female MCs, singers and producers who, through their music, aim to spotlight various health issues in Africa.
Beginning in June, the real-time series will feature episodes from Suva, Fiji.
