WHAT’S NEW WITH TANTRA-ZAWADI?

Peace and Blessings Beautiful Ones!

img_5551

Embracing the possibilities of a new season and inspiring adventures in poetry, music and performance art.

With new music projects on the horizon, I’ve been doing a lot of writing behind the scenes. I am also excited about first-time collaborations with some of the hottest dance music producers in the industry. News releases are on the way.

img_5154

Speaking of first times, I just returned from my first Mi Casa Holiday event in Carmen del Playa, Mexico. We had a blast, and I am already looking forward to next year’s happening. That party in Tulum was so inspiring and healing. Everything was magnificent; the people, the music, the beach and the vibe. What a memorable experience! Let’s continue to keep the spirit of house music alive.

It’s performance time friends and family! Hope you’ll join us on November 26th at the world famous Nuyorican Poets Café in New York City for Poetic Souljahs Presents: When Children of Yemeya Speak, 236 East 3rd Street, NYC, NY from 7-9pm – admission $15. Featuring: Nathan P, Osunyoyin Alake Afarike, Iyaba Ibo Mandingo, David Roberts, Regtuiniah, sefu kafele, Tantra Zawadi and Shareef Ali. This is one event you don’t want to miss.

VISIONS 2016 – 2017:
THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT

Nanga def?

Senegal-America Project Poster

Exciting news to share from THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT! We are going to Senegal, West Africa next month (December 2016), inshallah. We’re in preparation mode for another exciting journey to the Motherland with Tony Vacca (world renowned percussionist and co-founder of THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT), Abiodun Oyewole (founding member of the legendary group The Last Poets) and yours truly Tantra-zawadi. There we’ll team up with Massamba Diop (world renowned tama drummer for Baaba Maal and co-founder of THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT), Bideew Bou Bess (Senegalese hip-hop luminaries/international artists), Barou Sall (hoddou player also from Baaba Maal’s band), Backa Niang (Senegalese percussionist and celebrated vocalist) and special guests.

20151230_161713

THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT is delighted to announce an invitation to participate in Festival des Formes et des Rythmes du Monde at Espace Sobobade in Toubab Dialaw, Senegal (December 28, 2016 through January 1, 2017). We will facilitate workshops on world music, poetry and hip-hop, culminating in live performances at their uniquely designed amphitheater. Although we have participated in this festival before, it is an honor to be invited back. What is it like? It’s a convergence of international like-minded artists from varying cultures, sharing music, dance, theater, poetry, songs, storytelling, art and more. We enjoy delicious meals and spark up impromptu jam sessions from sun up to sun down, while exchanging massive ideas and information about global citizenship and the arts. We have a performance in the Massachusetts area prior to our journey to Senegal. The idea is to offer information about the project, share amazing creative energy, and help raise funds for our trip. The date is Saturday, December 3rd at The Arts Block, 289 Main Street, Greenfield, MA 01301 at 8:00pm. If you are unable to attend, but interested in helping to fund this extraordinary project, please contact us at: tonyvacca@comcast.net and/or jean@arts-are-essential.org. Thanking you in advance for your beautiful love and support.

What is the SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT?

“The SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT is an expandable, up-close-and-personal model for practicing the most essential and obvious principle of human interactions, which is that we are all connected. The primary goal of the project is to bring people together in meaningful collaborations that create transformational responses to what we share of common issues and common ground. It’s Global citizenship, and we’re using music as the vehicle to set all this in motion.”-Tony Vacca (co-founder)

There are two distinct aspects of this project: A performance troupe that features musicians, poets, and dancers from Senegal, America and beyond; and a non-profit sponsored network of partnerships that is focused on the power of our inter-connected global citizenship to address our common issues. These include health, education, equity, access, the prevention of violence, and the practice of joyful respect for our exquisite humanity.

As part of our project, we regularly bring visiting Senegalese artists to America for a variety of collaborations. This is an important part of how we finance the health and educational programs we’ve done.

We currently offer:
-Concerts and workshop presentations in schools throughout America
-Festival performances
-Club performances
-Projects and Visions trips to Senegal: collaborations of all sorts that begin in Senegal and are designed by participants.

Some past projects include music, health care, story-telling, documentary films, student travel, and school partnerships.

Concert performances:

This Project really began with music. The connections and friendships that grew from the music soon fostered collaborations that spawned concert performances and a great recording (The Senegal-America Project, 2001). From all this, we have created the performance spectacle called The Senegal-America Project. You can listen to us on our latest CD “Evolution of the Vibe” available now on CDbaby.com http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thesenegalamericaproject.

The groups and special guests who perform in concert as “The Senegal-America Project” include Tony Vacca’s World Rhythms Ensemble (Jim Matus, Derrik Jordan and Tony Vacca), one of Senegal’s most popular and innovative bands called Bideew Bou Bess, West African Rap/Hip-Hop pioneers Gokh-bi System, saxophonist Charles Neville of The Neville Brothers, tama master Massamba Diop, Senegalese dancer Abdou Sarr, master musician Jo Sallins, and poets Abiodun Oyewole (of the Last Poets), Tantra-zawadi and Magdalena Gomez.

A wide variety of “hands-on” workshops can be included as part of these programs when feasible.

If your school is interested in learning how you can be part of what we are creating, contact us at: tonyvacca@comcast.net and/or jean@arts-are-essential.org. To follow THE SENEGAL-AMERICA PROJECT on line, please visit http://www.tonyvacca.com/senegalamerica/.

SAVE THE DATE!

Please join us on Sunday, December 18th for “To Face It,” a staged reading by Tantra-zawadi from the novel by Lupe Family at the WOW Café Theater, 59-61 East 4th Street, NYC at 5:00pm. Admission is a sliding scale $15. One night only – directed by Rescue Poetix and Tantra-zawadi.

See what happens next in the life of Tania, a New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority bus operator and our main character, as she shares stories of family betrayal, abuse and USA politics. We always have a “talk back” following our readings, and last year’s topics included racism and sexism. We also had some movement exercises. I am so honored to be on board with this production promoting honest conversations about issues we should be encouraged to talk about. Be the show!

Keith Thompson celebrates his return to the stage with a live performance of his hits, upcoming releases & DJ set.

Opening performance by Spoken Word Artist Tantra-zawadi

Reduced advance tickets are available through Eventbrite
http://www.eventbrite.com/e/keith-thompson-reborn-live-music-dj-set-b-day-feista-tickets-27895377826
****
Artist/Producer/singer-songwriter/DJ Keith Thompson’s multi dimensional talents will be showcased in this celebration of life and art as he brings poetry, performance and DJ skills to new and known fans alike.

Soulful, deep, house, and reggae are the dimensions of Thompson’s musical world. “Break 4 Love” – “Beirut Is On Fire” – “Truly” – “Living On The Front-Line” – “Show Them Love” – “Can’t Take It” – “The Rhythm Of Life” – “Borders Don’t Matter” – “Africa In Your Veins” – “Believe”; over 3 million sold and counting. Every house music lover should have at least one Keith Thompson track in their player

Keith Thompson is well known for his mega house hit “Break 4 Love.” Beyond that classic, he has stayed true to soulful and deep house music over the years releasing club hits such as “The Rhythm Of Life,” “Can’t Take It,” “Believe,” “Its On” with Scott Wozniak to name a few. Thompson has created a strong fan base internationally from the Middle East to South Africa and Eastern Europe. By collaborating with producers and artist from each region, he continues to create underground hits like, “Living on the Frontline,” with Victor Simonelli, now an anthem in South Africa. “Africa In Your Veins,” “Borders Don’t Matter” with Ralf Gum, and “Truly” a number one hit in Bulgari with Maria Ilieva.

His Best Of 2.0 album features his most recent hits internationally. Keith’s engaging stage performance as well as his years of dedication to the music has made him a house music legend. Thompson is one of a few house music artist/ producers, who has sold 3 million units of their music and counting. Two and a half million with “Break 4 Love” alone. His original version of “Break 4 Love” as part of the group Raze is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which has sold over 50 Million copies.

In 1983 Keith began his foray in the music industry as a radio announcer/DJ in New York on WNWK 105.9 FM while studying for his bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts. Reggae was his first love and so his first release was in that genre, “Everywhere I Go” on his own Flat Records label. The cover song, garnered regional support on radio and launched his career beyond DJing. But the emergence of house music in 1985 captivated him and he was hooked. His old experiments in speeding up dub and old dance records served him well as he began producing house and teamed up with “Bounce, Rock, Skate” producer Vaughan Mason to create what was to become an eternal classic.

Rhythm and Flow…Dream Team of Musicians and Poets – Saturday, September 24th at Gateway City Arts Center!

September 12, 2016

image

Rhythm and Flow features musicians:
Tony Vacca: balafon, gongs and percussion
Charles Neville: saxophone
Derrik Jordan: electric violin, vocals and percussion
Jo Sallins: electric bass and percussion
Massamba Diop: Senegalese tama drum

and poets Abiodun Oyewole (of The Last Poets) and Tantra Zawadi.

Rhythm and Flow is a dream team gathering of musicians and poets; it’s a combination of World Rhythms Ensemble and The Senegal-America Project.

This concert is a confluence of traditions and innovations in musc and outspoken words. These five musicians are life-long music explorers who use their roots in World Music, Jazz, and Blues to create a signature all their own.

Poets Abiodun Oyewole (of The Last Poets) and Tantra Zawadi create the perfect poetic compliment; a world class, male/female one-two punch of word-and-flow that is rare even in these days of the rebirth of poetry.

Of special note: We’re so happy to say that Windspeed Media will be filming this event. Its long past due to have an updated video of our concerts.

Check them out at: www.windspeedmedia.com.
