WBC logo

As a non-profit multi-cultural arts organization we are dedicated to promoting, presenting & preserving the African & Indigenous cultures of the world through Music, Art, Dance, Education & Technology. We are located in beautiful Balboa Park in the heart of San Diego, California.

Through raising consciousness, the WorldBeat Center promotes peace within our San Diego community by providing on going programs and services that nurture the spirit of children, the elderly, and everyone in between. Our main goal is then to create unity within diversity.

Specific days of each year have been dedicated to raise awareness about great leaders, artists, activists and scientists, such as Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Marcus Garvey Day, a day in Tribute to Audre Lorde and a day in Tribute to Bob Marley and all the Reggae Legends. WBC includes free festivals and cultural celebrations in our annual programming each year, including Kwanzaa, Earth Day and the International Dance Festival/Day of the Drum.

WorldBeat Center's resident artist and companies teach ongoing classes for adults and children in cultural drumming and dance; African; Taiko; Egyptian; and Brazilian Samba. Opportunities for the artists to showcase their creative work is one of the WorldBeat Center perks and serves the mission to raise awareness through music, dance, art, and cultural artifacts.
