Musical Explorations is a free summer music series that highlighted various genres of African American music styles. It launched during Black Music, June 2018, with a blues showcase featuring the Peterson Brothers. We presented a R&B and neo-soul showcase and a series highlighting hip-hop music. The goal for the series is to provide free, family friendly entertainment in The District and to also provide a platform for the myriad of talented musicians located in Austin and throughout the state. Austin is dubbed as the “Live Music Capital of the World”, we want to ensure that the City continues to nurture the vast array of musicians of African descent that reside here.
