“Sing Me Home"
with Stephanie Rooker, ArinMaya, & Edson Sean

There is something about music that can naturally bring us to a feeling of “home." Music lifts the inspiration that stirs us from within –our prayers, hopes, dreams– and transforms that inspiration into felt experience that both deepens our understanding and compels us to live out those prayers, hopes, and dreams in our lives. Through a combination of composed & improvised music, this trio of lifelong musicians offers a suspended moment of devotion, of connection to the divine, through creativity. Join us as our souls rise together in song and liberate us from the suffering of separation – to bring us all home.

$20 / FREE for Voice Journey Day-Retreat participants!

Voice Journey workshop @ Music Lab at the June Bug Center

20.Mar.2013 |4:30 - 6pm

Floyd, VA

*Voice Journey workshop*

A Zimbabwean proverb says, “If you can talk, you can sing; if you can walk, you can dance." Whether we believe we “can’t carry a tune" or we identify as experienced singers – many of us (sometimes secretly) dream of expanding our vocal abilities, freeing ourselves from the fears surrounding creative expression, and allowing our voices become the resounding instruments of our truth.

Voice Journey is a workshop that exposes the hidden powers of the voice. Explore the many voices of your voice by practicing vocal techniques from all over the world (including Classical Indian, Tibetan, Afro-Brazilian, African-American, and North and South American indigenous traditions – as well as contemporary practices). Voice Journey emphasizes not only vocal technique –where you can take your voice– but also the powerful nature of vocal vibration relating to physical, mental, psychological, emotional states –where your voice can take you. Each person’s unique “voice journey" goes both of these ways and –when pursued– lasts for a lifetime.

Free to all Music Lab and K-12 students / Adults - $10

*Heart/BEATS & Blood/LINES: Sounds of Hip-Hop workshop*

Often misrepresented & misunderstood, the hip-hop form holds great potential for empowering the expression & communication of people across cultures. A refined craft of word-play, story-telling, and cyclic rhythmic flow -- hip-hop rises from a long, rich lineage of musical ingenuity.

Heart/BEATS & Blood/LINES is a workshop that traces the fundamental elements of hip-hop back to their cultural roots & pure sonic form. The strength of these elements in any style of musical performance spells the power of it's influence. The practices presented offer a deep experience of these elements that enhances the feel of & for hip-hop as well as it's power as a form of creative expression.

Explore how the power of pulse and the magnetic push & pull of tone can improve musical flow. Overcome fear of improvisation with creative freestyle play. Explore different forms that transform struggles into anthems and heartbreaks into springboards. The workshop breaks it down, so you can build it back up.

Free to all Music Lab and K-12 students / Adults - $10

13.Mar.2010 |3PM

Brooklyn, NY

**Unfortunately, the "Saturday Ciphers" performance series has been canceled this week due some scheduling challenges btwn the galleries. However --even though we're not performing-- you can still come through to check out this amazing exhibit, Saturday from 12noon - 6pm.**

"Housing is a Human Right: Stories from the Struggle for Home" is a special showcase of MoCADA's The Gentrification of Brooklyn: The Pink Elephant Speaks exhibit. Composed of oral narratives and photographs, along with testimonies and memories of home, this collection of viscerally honest, first-person narratives serve as a reminder that home is as tenuous a space in New York City as the shelter that sustains it. This exhibit is organized by MoCADA, Housing is a Human Right, and Oja (from Earthdriver.org).

The purpose of the performance series is to bring folks together under the banner of Housing is a Human Right to share the works and stories from the project as well as to explore the question of what Home means to us through our words and ways.

Adriala Gallery is a converted former 2-car garage opened last summer by Bed-Stuy native Brian Williams and his wife to serve as a community art space by and for the community to present their work.
