For many of us music is our lifeline, our source of sanity and solace in a challenging world. But that tenet hits a higher level for the members of German band the Mix, who perform in Albany on September 23. Based in the city of Braunschweig, the Mix is a rock act comprised primarily of individuals with autism and other disabilities.

The band’s goal is to spread the message of inclusion while simultaneously showcasing the individual talents of each member. According to Peter Savic, who founded the group in 2009, the Mix’s 11 members have used their musical gifts to develop a reputation as “ambassadors for people with disabilities. The Mix seeks to inspire the development of an inclusive society.”

The success experienced by the band during the past few years is reflective of not only the professionalism and enthusiasm of the members, but also the public’s growing interest in the topic of inclusion. Determined to tell their stories and encourage others to listen and take the band seriously, and the Mix has developed a solid fan base throughout Germany and has played in England, Denmark, and Africa. September marks their debut in the US and Canada.

Here’s a promotional video for the group’s “Wo geht de Reise hin (Where Are We Headed?)”:
