“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain…”
-Shila Iris w/ Bob Marley
Chant with me… peace and blessings to you.
I’d love to have you join me next Saturday for a unique Wine Tasting! Everyone is welcome!
Dress in your Afrikan garb so we can take some fine family pictures. If you don’t have any, please, come as you are. Peace and Joy!
Purchase tickets here or pay at the door.

Tonight we dance!
The symbols of a culture, a heritage of humanity, mean a lot. When they begin to disappear, be very concerned. So, the moral of the story is: wear your color, wear your art, wear your culture to remind you of where we been and we’re going. Don’t give up. Sankofa!
Besides, color is so dope!
I stay woke,

The water heals
so, I swim deep
the depth of it all
just seems so out of reach
so I fetch, dig deep in my memory
the spirits rise, so again I can see
at the bottom of the ocean
in Labadi beach
The horses, they come for me
I am the master of this ceremony
new life, new mind
3 dollars and 6 dimes
Cause the woman that knows something,
knows that she knows nothing at all
