Rick Bars gives back to the community with Santana Sankofa’s program Downbeat Collective.
This program teaches kids and young adults how to make beats,write lyrics and about the music business.
It takes place in New York in a community center in the Bronx.
Santana’s vision is to bring resources directly to the Bronx and the community to help bring more opportunities for the youth.
This program can really help empower the youth to learn more about music and give them the tools to succeed.Here is the list of producers/artist: Feed The Mind,Muso,Contrast,Jiggy aka Ingnis, Comfortable Dude and Jay disparity.Each artist has there great individual talents and can collectively bring knowledge to the youth.
Its unfortunate that the program was postponed due to the pandemic However, once things get better the program should resume as it once was. [There is no specific date when it will start again]
