CHAMBERS / Opening Reception Recap

img_2991

The opening reception of our CHAMBERS exhibition was nothing short of dope.  Major ‘thank you’ to our partners Art Whino/Blind Whino for bringing together a more than solid stable of participating artists.  Hats off to all of the talented artists whose works showed their range of talent and abilities across an array of mediums.  You’d be hard pressed to find just one favorite.

Shouts to the Diamond Cutterz DJ crew for spinning what felt like the right Wu-Tang track where the last one left off, which thoroughly complemented the visuals.  Thanks to all of the art lovers who attended.  Whether you were an art aficionado or Wu-Tang fan, like-minds were in the building to celebrate and elevate culture.  No worries if you missed the opening reception, as the exhibition will be up (call to make an appointment) and we’ll be holding a closing reception on Thursday October 27th, which, mark my words, will surely pick up where the opening reception left off.

SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE / The Ethiopia Edition / Recap

IMG_2185

Our most recent SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE performance at Tropicalia, where we fused our musical influences from our trip to Ethiopia, was our best SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE performance (to date) and most definitely ranks up there as one of our top SHAOLIN JAZZ events, period.  I can’t front, there were some elements of our production that we were late in cementing, but MAN did things work out!

Thanks to all of those who attended, props to Tropicalia for hosting us, salute to everyone that performed – giving the show the diversity and flavor that we were looking to create: Sound of the City, Wayna, Asheru and Rock, and Ras Nebyu and special thanks to everyone who helped to promote our show.  For more recap photos click Read the rest of this entry
