Artistic talent from eclectic backgrounds makes for ear-opening diplomacy, as the public-private partnership and creative powerhouse OneBeat proves. This month, an oud player from Nazareth, a hip Nigerian guitarist, a Russian beatboxer and 22 other young, pioneering artists convene for a two-week residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, where the Fellows will meet, form their ensembles, compose new work and refine their performances. Florida performances will be Sept. 18 at Arts on Douglas, 123 Douglas St., New Smyrna Beach (http://artsondouglas.net/); Sept. 20 at Timucua White House, 2001 Hamilton Lane, Orlando (http://timucua.com) and Sept. 21 at the Atlantic Center, 1414 Art Center Ave., New Smyrna Beach (www.atlanticcenterforthearts.org).
