WHO: Levi Jardim comes from a diverse musical culture, growing up in a musical family who gave him the passion for singing, playing and creating music. Jardim’s diverse musical background allows him to combine his Brazilian roots, classical training and love for rock into a sound that is uniquely his. He taught himself how to play guitar and drums at the age of 14 and has been writing music ever since. Currently residing in Orlando, FL, Jardim has been a featured performer at the 2013 and 2014 Florida Music Festival conferences and performs at live music venues all across town including The Social, The Abbey and BackBooth.
HOW: The goal of “The Road Project” is to show kids and teens that even though you might seem small you can make a difference. Jardim believes music can change people, and people can change the world. “People can take the ugliness and make it beautiful,” says Jardim. “I want to inspire others to use music, art and any other medium they can to raise their voice and change someone’s life for the better.”
WHY: “The Road Project” was inspired by a story Jardim heard while attending a charity event about a boy who lived in an impoverished part of Africa and whose life had been torn apart by AIDS. The boy lost his entire family to the disease, and all he had left was his older brother who was killed in an accident. The story goes on to tell how the boy ran, in complete darkness, searching for anyone that could help him. When he finally got to the town, charity volunteers took him in to their orphanage and gave him a better life. From this story draws Jardim’s inspiration to make music to make a difference.
