Bridge to Everywhere musicians and composers Derrick Skye and James Waterman lead a workshop sharing effective strategies and approaches in collaborations involving diverse musical traditions, including Hindustani rhythmic structures and melodic frameworks, Ghanaian polyrhythms, Balkan Folk music, and Western classical music. UCLA students are invited to play these compositions during the workshop and to join Bridge to Everywhere during the concert. Organized by Kim Nguyen Tran, UCLA Ethnomusicology faculty, in collaboration with Mehrenegar Rostami, director of "Cultures in Musical Dialogue."

Bridge to Everywhere is a Los Angeles-based chamber ensemble and nonprofit arts organization dedicated to supporting composers, performers, and educators who celebrate cultural diversity through interwoven musical traditions. Through collaborations, performances, and education programs, the organization strives to build bridges between instruments, genres, cultures, and people.
