Founded in 2007 by Chicago teaching artists, Intercultural Music Production is a cultural arts organization committed to empowering global communities through music, dance, theatre, and visual performance, as well as education and production. 

The partners and artists at Intercultural Music specialize in Middle Eastern, North African, Andalusian, Greek, Turkish, South Asian music and more.

We work extensively with children in the Chicago and suburban school districts, local and national colleges and universities, consulates, intercultural/interfaith groups, as well as with international arts organizations and artists.

Intercultural Music has strong ties to the international music community through years of performing and teaching and also provides referrals and consultation for world music education and cultural events.
