The mission of ALMA (meaning "soul" in English) is to increase knowledge and awareness in the community about local musicians and important historical figures in Austin’s Latino music scene, provide exposure and resources to local musicians, and to foster the development of young musicians who will keep Latino musical styles and traditions alive in the Capitol City.
This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin
