Music and art as a socio-cultural activity is the expression of emotions and an effective tool for the creativity of individuals in a society. The practice of these activities contribute to the development of people and as a consequence, also to the development of society.

The Ecuadorian-Hungarian Music Foundation "MusArtEH" has as its mission the generation of spaces for education and musical activity, through the inclusion of children and young people from various social and cultural sectors. Also, this organization seeks the formation and creation of educators and work spaces, through art and music.
