In these two years, a continuation of a previous project financed by Creative Europe, both entities have worked to disseminate early music through the recovery of heritage and traditional violería techniques, promoting employability through non-profit education. formal, with the active participation of people with and without disabilities.

Neurological music therapist Hannah Slater will organize the community creative exchange workshop “Entre Compositores” within the context of the Delyramus project. Hannah Slater studied piano and music therapy at the Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) where she received various recognitions for her public service work and was finalist in a composition competition.  She went on to practice music therapy at the ground-breaking clinic Neurologic Music Therapy Services of Arizona and has been collaborating with Musica para el Autismo since 2015. Through participation in the workshop, people with disabilities will be guided in composing different forms of music while collaborating with professional musicians.  This will cultivate the artistic potential of people with functional diversity and highlight their powerful contribution to cultural evolution. Additionally, caregivers, family and friends will be invited to workshops on the therapeutic use of music to increase the independence and quality of life of their loved ones. Starting in September, Hannah Slater will bring together the participants and professional musicians/composers once a week to develop a spoken word and digital instrumental track, an acoustic soundscape, and an improvisational piece, all of which will be performed in a final concert open to the public.
