Culturas Music and Arts:

Culturas Music & Arts is an organization operating in the Eastern Coachella Valley. Culturas has worked to change the stigma of our community by providing art & music venues. We have worked with numerous artists, musicians, and local organizations to realize projects. We are continuously expanding our vision to serve the community.

Culturas is a Spanish word meaning “culture”. Art and music are some of the elements that are at the center of all cultures. By sharing art and music we can teach each other about our culture as well. The arts is an essential part of a community. If promotes well-being, creates vibrant communities that are more connected, diverse groups share common experiences, new perspectives & builds understanding. The idea is essential to Culturas Music & Arts mission and work.
