A little bit of our history:

Mada6BMF was created in May 2013 by Madalena Sousa, business administrator, event producer and president for Asuos Productions Inc. Mrs. Sousa realized that there was a need to promote, develop, educate the public and to produce cultural events that would unify Brazilian music lovers, students and teachers in the USA, especially in the city of New York where the Foundation was created.

The Foundation’s main purpose is to produce educational concerts, music festivals (popular, folkloric and classical), and programs that would strengthen the conscience and appreciation of Brazilian music and arts. BMF also believes that music education can change and enhance people’s lives by bringing classes to low-income community in the US and helping children stay off the streets in Brazil and other countries.

BMF’s Mission is to teach others about Brazilian music and instruments, along with strengthening the public awareness and appreciation for the country’s heritage.

The goal is to create a musical community that is rich with cultural social and intellectual diversity. We support the development of Brazilian music programs with other organizations and provide platforms to implement the education of Brazilian music in the United States and Brazil.

For the next years, we want to keep on expanding the horizon and bringing Brazilian Music to the world.
