In August 2005, a music school was formed in the Mi Cometa community center in the Guasmo Sur neighborhood of the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. Thanks to the efforts of the school’s German instructor, Magdalena Abrams, funds were established to purchase new instruments, such as clarinets and an electric keyboard, as well as amplification equipment and the basic necessities to form musical bands.
Shortly after her return to Germany, Magdalena began looking for other young people who also wanted to support the Mi Cometa music school, ultimately arriving in Guasmo Sur with a group of 15 volunteers from Oldenburg, Germany in 2007. That visit was a short one, however, resulting in one month of intensive music classes.
