IF you already know the CEC you can click DONATE NOW and make your contribution. IF you would like to know more about what we are doing and the programs that your contributions will support read on...

The Community Education Center, more commonly known as the CEC, is an artists’ incubator and a bastion of creative activity! Located in West Philly’s University City in the federally designated Promise Zone, the center is housed in a former Quaker Meetinghouse and school built in 1901. As a nonprofit community art center the CEC has a 43-year history of community engagement.

The CEC brings people together in our physical 'space' while creating the conceptual space for artists to make work and share their work. Long before the phrase “artists incubator” became popular, the CEC was an innovator with exceptional programming, supporting performing artists in the development and presentation of their work and engaging community members across the divide of economic, cultural, and gender differences like no other space in the city. The CEC continues to play an important role in the lives of hundreds of artists and thousands of community members each year.

Photo by Piero Giunti
VIENTO CALLEJERO (Street Breeze) is a Los Angeles based Urban style Cumbia trio that formed in 2013. The group is composed of three talented musicians, Gloria Estrada on guitar, Federico Zuniga on bass, and Gabriel Villa on drums. The group has taken a unique approach to their musical endeavor by inviting and featuring a different guest vocalist for every performance. Thus creating a one-of-a-kind musical experience every time.

Together they bring a fresh approach to urban tropical music stripping it down to feature its rawest elements. With Cumbia making a resurgence, artists have been re-mixing and re-interpreting the Classic Cumbias in dance halls all over the world. VIENTO CALLEJERO represents the newest incarnation of the movement in Los Angeles, breaking down the rhythmic and melodic pulse of Cumbia Colombiana, Son Montuno, Merengue, Reggae, Dance Hall, Funk, and Rock to create a fresh sound with a new twist that is infectious to the listeners ears, hips, and feet.

Lisa and Naomi Diaz are the daughters of the late Cuban percussionist Anga Diaz. Naomi plays percussive instruments, the Cajon and the Batas, while Lisa plays piano. Together the twins have learned the songs of their father's culture, Yoruba.
Yoruba travelled from West Africa to Cuba with slavery in the 1700s. The Yoruba people have the highest twinning rate in the World, and twins occupy an important position within Yoruba culture. Ibeyi is pronounced "ee-bey-ee" and translates as "Twins" in Yoruban.

Ibeyi sing in English and Yoruban, and have created a minimalist sound that merges elements of their heritage with their natural love of modern music as teenagers growing up in Paris, citing artists such as James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences.

Ibeyi are currently recording their debut album for XL, with Richard Russell on production.
