Wilson is an amazingly talented 17 year old Autistic musician with a passion for Bolivian music. He is desperate to return to Bolivia, South America to further his musical education. Despite busking hard this year, he will be unable to fund another trip. For the past two years with help from his family, Wilson has been able to immerse himself in Bolivian music and culture. He receives instruction in Bolivia from one of the worlds best charango players and his growth has been incredible. Wilson plays a multitude of instruments including charango, zampona, guitar and quena and sings in Spanish, Quechua and Aymara, two of the indiginous languages of Bolivia. In the past year he has begun composing folkloric Bolivian music with Spanish lyrics. His musical ability and career are key to an independant future, his music is intrinsically linked to his ability to manage his autism. His music calms him and permits him to interact with others and is his greatest means of cummunication. Currently Wilson is busking to try to raise sufficient funds however it is not an acheivable goal on his own. I beleive he deserves a helping hand. If you are able to donate, please do and thank you. If you are unable to donate, please share his story......your shares and likes may make his dreams come true. With every $30 or greater donation you will receive a copy of his latest CD. All funds raised will go towards travel costs, music lessons and accomodation costs. Any excess funds will be put toward future study trips.
