Street of Sound is a video documentary project that showcases the talent that everyday street musicians and emerging artists have with the world. We aim to share not only musical talent but also the personal stories of musicians, and provide them with the platform and audience they deserve.
This project was born during the Covid-19 pandemic, when all of the cultural venues New York City usually thrives from, closed down. We started seeing more musicians and performers sharing their art in public space, and we sought to shine a light on their art through high quality recordings.
Musicians have always shaped the very identity of cities, and brought cultural value that is often overlooked, misused, and very poorly regarded.
We want to change that.
