Ethnobeat is University of Maryland's premier world music a cappella group. It is composed of students who perform songs from all over the world in their original languages. We share music from an assortment of cultures to promote diversity among people of different backgrounds. We hope our performance will help give a broader perspective into language and culture, as well as provide nuance to conversations about diversity.
