Clave de Sur In Summary:

While we do not have details to our day to day work life, here we provide some data of what we have been able to successfully accomplish since 2005:




¡Music at reach for everyone!

Access to art and culture is a right that defines the personality of each person. The arts provide qualities of expression, communication and in many cases, it also contributes to the workplace, improving the quality of life of those who access them.

Musical Instruction/Classes

The classes are prepared in terms of training level, age and even personality.


Workshops & Activities

We carry out training, integration, and entertainment activities.


Artistic Groups

To enhance and stimulate talent and strengthen the integration of the participants.



Opening New Horizons with the Music of Guasmo Sur

The first classes were held with instruments made from recycled materials, such as plastic bottles and wood. Thanks to the perseverance and support of several friendly people and institutions, today we can teach more musical instruments and in improved facilities.


Artistic and Personal Development

Training is provided in two fundamental areas: musical or dance training and training in integral development issues.


Theoretical and practical classes of musical instruments, with personalized attention.


Modern dance course, classical dance, techniques, and exercises.


Training on personal and comprehensive development issues.


Working with other organizations for the continuation of developing projects.


Reviews and Stories of those who have participated with us!

They are always cheerful, creative and very dedicated to music. They try to involve parents and the community by giving free concerts, organising workshops and meetings. For me Clave de Sur became more than just a working space. It became a home, a meeting place for friends and family. I can definitly recommend this project!

Were the best vacations in my life, I had a wonderful time, the language was not a problem. I always felt free and safe to talk to they. Highly recommended experience there. If you have the opportunity to go there, meet people, meet the culture, I would say go, and have fun with your days in Guasmo Sur.

Stéfano Mariani


This community music project is completely ruled by the young themselves, which shows a real interest and care of the whole community for this project. I highly recommend this place to make volunteering, you will learn so much about this incredible place and culture, and about your own self, I think you will not regret it.
