ABOUT NAMA

107 W 130th St, New York, NY 10027

Founded in 1904, NAMA (New Amsterdam Musical Association), is the oldest African-American musical organization in the United States. It was founded at the time that the American Federation of Musicians Local 310 did not admit minority musicians. Taking matters in their own hands, NAMA became the first black music union thus allowing black musicians to perform in and around New York City!
