MUSIC BY: The Geibral Elisha Movement… spiritual jazz fusion that always impresses audiences with an astounding technique & imagination.

POETRY BY: Clottee Hammons; Giancarlo Huapaya; Jabari Jawan Allen; Leah Marche; Melissa Dunmore; Mike Pfister; Dasean Howell (NDGO Sista);and Seti. More to be announced!
