New York City subway system is one of the world’s largest. Its stations, corridors and trains are full of talented artists, particularly musicians. We see them, we listen to them, sometimes we even give them money. But who are they? What are their dreams, their expectations?

Via a Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and Vimeo, Colectivo Piloto wants to give these artists the renown they deserve in the hope of making them more familiar to us; everyday straphangers.

In a long term, “Music on the Subway” turns into an extended chronicle of the NYC subways hidden talents.
If you are one of them, Colectivo Piloto wants to hear from you.
