Ongoing #SOCKSFORSHELTERS drive for homeless shelters, all year long!
If you know a non-profit center or a group of people who would benefit from multicultural music! We will arrange a free show or workshop at their location..FREE..of course!
Our mission at Armelle for Kids LLC is to bring music as a healing tool to those who need it the most: mothers and children/teenagers at domestic violence shelters, non-profit organizations working directly with underprivileged families, orphanages, refugee camps, and schools in disaster areas.
We bring them instruments as a means to express their hopes and release their fears. Sounds, lyrics, beats, rhythmic patterns all play a role in children's cognitive and emotional development. Music and languages purge grief and heal hearts.
We put the adults in their world in charge of the music program after we leave. They make the program sustainable and keep their musical heritage alive while setting up an outlet for their youth to meet, speak and grow.
Bridges are thus built. Beyond our differences, we all have the same core values.
