2018 marks Nvak's third year of programmatic impact in Armenia. In reaching our goal to scale the program to other countries, we chose Israel as our second market. Jerusalem not only fits the pillars of Nvak’s mission, but we feel passionate about the city, the diversity of the people, and the potential of the youth.
In August, we completed a 2-week program with 20 students from around the country. Over 100 students applied via an online application and their ages ranged from 16-28. We recorded 18 demos and brought over two Berklee College of Music faculty and one songwriter/producer from Los Angeles, Big Taste.
Big Taste (Leroy Clampit) produced three of our top songs and we are now actively pursuing liscenising and publishing opportunities for the materials written during both Nvak sessions.
