About The Rhythm Foundation
The Rhythm Foundation aims to connect communities with the rich musical cultures of the world. Founded in 1988 in Miami Beach, The Rhythm Foundation is a non-profit organization that increases international awareness through live music. We build and strengthen the diverse communities in South Florida through consistent shared cultural experiences.
Since its inception 30 years ago, the Rhythm Foundation has presented concerts, festivals and events featuring over 800 established and innovative artists from around the world as well as locally-based musicians. Special focus is given to those cultures connecting to South Florida audiences – music from Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. Concerts feature artists who reinvent traditional rhythms, reinvigorate musical genres, and carry history with them in the form of music. Focusing on artistic excellence, we have built and continue to develop a multi-generational, cross-cultural audience.
In 2015, we began year-round management of the City of Miami Beach’s North Beach Bandshell, the MiMo (mid-century modern) oceanfront treasure that anchors the North Beach business district. Dozens of concerts and shows per year are showcased here., many of them free and all ages.
