The Rhythm of ‘Take Me to the River’

The Melody of Our Mission

‘Take Me to the River’ is not just a project; it’s a heartfelt journey into the soul of American music.

What started as a series of documentaries evolved into a comprehensive project encompassing films, music productions, educational programs, and live tours. Our mission has always been to keep the river of music flowing for future generations.”
