Georgiary Bledsoe founded BUMP-The Triangle in 2005 with the mission to foster urban youth empowerment through African Diasporic music and mentoring by promoting musical proficiency, cultural literacy and resilience.
 
Music of the African Diaspora thrives in countries and cultures throughout the world, where the seeds of African expressive practice have taken root.
 
BUMP delivers a tool-kit of cultural knowledge that brings this heritage to all youth. In addition, our programs instills resilience, positive racial identity, and a host of skills that contribute to life success.
 
BUMP-The Triangle was inspired by Bledsoe's work with the Boston Urban Music Project while she was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Brandeis University and a Lecturer at Tufts University.
