The Rhythm Foundation is an award-winning non-profit organization celebrating its 30th season of presenting outstanding international artists in South Florida. Through concerts and festivals by established and innovative artists, with many Florida and U.S. debuts, The Rhythm Foundation is considered one of the foremost presenters of world music in the country. Special focus is given to those cultures connecting to South Florida audiences – music from Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. As a local cultural anchor, the foundation strives to build and strengthen diverse communities through shared cultural experiences. Since 2015, The Rhythm Foundation has been managing the historic oceanfront amphitheater North Beach Bandshell for the City of Miami Beach.

Luis Olazabal

The selection of concert photographs on view highlights great musical moments presented by The Rhythm Foundation. The photographic oeuvre of Peruvian-born and Miami Beach-based photographer Luis Olazabal, is an expressive and vivid documentation of the foundation’s acclaimed history of producing unforgettable live performances. His knowledge and passion for music is expressed in his intuitive approach toward the subject. These large-scale portraits, embodying the energy and spirit of the performer, make ephemeral moments concrete; each capturing an artist transported by the intense communion they share with their instruments, supporting musicians, cast and audience.
