I have been to many marches and parades before; but I did not expect the overwhelming feeling that I experienced at the NYC Women’s March on Saturday, January 21, 2017. The sounds. The colors. The music! It was a little scary on one level and exhilarating on another. When I exited the subway, I was lost in a sea of people with costumes, signage and many people! (The slogans were rather creative! It is amazing how creative humans can be when oppressed!)
As a bass guitarist, the songs, beats and chants caught my ear…please do not make me try to recall any of them! There were so many! However, I joined in, lending my voice to the masses. All of the chants said the same thing; we ALL want equality, justice and peace in all forms. We want control of our bodies. We do not want war!
Thanks to your generosity, our Ecole Fula Flute, in collaboration with the Centre Tyabala de Guinee, is doing well and enriching the lives of many kids in Conakry (Guinea).
We further our students’ individual and musical development and thus contribute to advance Guinean culture by bringing up a new generation of dedicated flute players thereby infusing a new life in this iconic instrument.
In preparation for what promises to be a truly monumental 2017, Mac Gollehon has booked a series of exciting club shows.
“Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics [is] a fusion of EDM and Salsa, making for a unique and dramatic genre of musical energy unlike any that I have heard thus far.” – Eileen Shapiro, Huffington Post
Legendary trumpet player Mac Gollehon, or “Chops”, as Miles Davis once called him, will be performing in a series of shows across New York City in support of his acclaimed 2016 album, Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics. The album was recorded at Bill Laswell’s Orange Music Sound Studios and has been billed as “a great mix of Latin-inspired house music, with highlighted acoustic instruments like percussion, guitars and, of course, the powerful trumpet of Gollehon.”
Hello. My name is Samuel Claiborne, a poet, musician and healer. In 1992, a freak accident rendered me completely paralyzed from the shoulders down and in almost unimaginable and essentially un-treatable pain. I was 32 years old, the sole breadwinner for my two young children and my wife.
