“This isn’t Latino music for Hispanic Heritage Month alone. Rather, I invite you to unlearn perhaps what you’ve been taught about these cultures and preview the spirit of a glowing and growing next generation of soul music in America.” – yours truly! Read full piece for the Brooklyn Museum’s tumblr HERE!
Back in New York City aka #NY$hitty this weekend for the next couple weeks. If I were a band and this two week trip was a tour, I would call it:
WRAP THAT SHIT UP, BEE: GET IT IN, PACK IT UP AND GET THE FUCK OUT
I’ll be doing a gun-shot move out of Staten Island aka ISLA to skip East Coast winter and get busy in the Bay Area. Ding ding diiiing!
So, if you’re around, please come out THIS SATURDAY to the Brooklyn Museum for Target First Saturdays with Artist talks, hands-on projects, film, dance and special live performances from Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, La Mecanica Popular and Los Rakas.
