That's right. OYE has and new official website!
The last few months OYE has had a team of people debating content and discussing design that would repesent OYE. Last saturday afternoon, with sweat on their brows, they uploaded the new site...followed by a large group hug.
Before you look at the site, we would like to thank the people who helped make it all possible.
Nimer Alverez-OYE scholarship student extraordinaire and website programmer
Livia Marcias- Star text editor and translator
Eduardo Martín- Spanish grammar police
Kat Burdine- Team organizer and designer
Founders and the Board of Directors- for patience, content control and creative freedom
Basically, this site was the work of OYE as a whole. If you have comments or suggestions please let us know.
We hope you like it,
(the spanish site launches in one week)

A week ago OYE threw a huge party to celebrate its' fourth anniversary. It was a HUGE success! With more than 300 people in attendance, La Casa de Cultura (the cultural center in el Progreso) was bursting. People started pouring in at 2:45 and at 3:00 the crowd was bubbling with anticipation.
At 3:30, Abreak Elhoe, a band lead by OYE's very own Rock star Oscar Ramos, opened the show and stunned the crowd with solid music and not to mention a bass solo by Oscar on his new shinny blue bass (gifted by JMU).

¡¡¡¡OYE el Ritmo 2009!!!!
As we look through pictures and edit videos to share with you here is a taste of OYE el Ritmo yesterday.
It was a huge party with more then 300 youth, five dance groups, and four bands!
The party lasted from 3:30- 7:15.
We owe a huge thanks to the following supporters who made this even possible:

We are still feeling aftershocks and noting new cracks in the walls after the earthquake. As the earth settles, OYE moves into high gear preparing for the best party of the year!
As some of you may have read before this month we celebrate OYE's fourth birthday!!! Which means party, party, party! This Thursday at 3.30 local high schools, OYE students and community members will flood La Casa de La Cultura for a student talents show, and incredible concert. With purely Honduran music and vibes this Thursday is sure to be the best birthday bash ever!
If you are anywhere close to Progeso it will be well worth the trip.
We hope to see you there!
