If you are not familiar with Red Bull Music Academy, here's the short version:
Each year since 1999 Red Bull has executed international outreach to find the most promising applicants from around the world to engage in a two week intensive seminar on music production. Recent locations include Melbourne, Rome, Cape Town, Sao Paulo and Barcelona. Past lecturers / participants range from Bun B, Diplo and Chuck D to Sly and Robbie and Pete Rock.
Selected applicants will be fortunate enough to attend an all expense paid, 2 week trip to RBMA in London in 2010!
On March 14, Red Bull will host the first in a series of events in 2009 to find Philadelphia's most promising musical talents from musicians, songwriters and MC's to vocalists, DJs and general music enthusiasts.
This is a one day, invite only, lecture with Philly's favorite son and internationally acclaimed musician Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson.
Additionally, there will be equipment demos and software clinics all held at The Studio; a state-of-the-art facility in downtown Philadelphia, which has been home for recording artists including the Roots, Erykah Badu, Common, Jill Scott, Musiq and many others.
