Old Songs New Opportunities (OSNO) is an innovative program run by the Erie Art Museum. It trains former refugees who now live in Erie to work in early learning centers and to use their traditional children’s songs on the job. Thanks to a major federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Service, OSNO has also coached hundreds of American teachers to use the OSNO repertoire in their classrooms and document it with videos. In the spring of 2016 the OSNO IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign raised over $6000 to record Simba La La: World Music for Children. The album features 36 songs from Puerto Rico, Bosnia, Africa, the Middle East and Bhutan collected from the past 10 years of OSNO trainings. Click here to purchase your copy now!
