Musicambia, which began in 2014, provides music opportunities to populations within prisons and jails throughout the United States. The classes include composition, performing, instrument lessons and music theory. Musicambia believes a more humane criminal legal system in the United States is necessary. They aim to build supportive and creative communities that foster meaningful connections, communication, self-confidence and positive self-image within the harsh environment of prison. The goal is to provide participants with an opportunity to develop useful life skills through the study and performance of music that will serve them well upon re-entry into society. In fact, there is an alumni program outside prisons, which continues a music-based approach to building community.
