THANK YOU EVERYONE! I had decided to donate all profits for the month of May to charity and together we raised $103.30 for the Food Bank of New York City!! That's exactly 517 meals provided to those in need in NYC. Your support means so much to me and to those who rely on the Food Bank.
I would like to continue donating the profits from this album to charity, all profits from June sales will be donated to the International Woman Space here in Germany. This is an organization that does very important work with refugee women, learn more here: iwspace.de/about/
For the past two months, I've been performing a totally improvised concert every Saturday night from my living room. At first it was the result of a reactive impulse, everything was grinding to a halt, people are dying, everyone is afraid, I'm afraid, what do I do? So I started to play, and it was the perfect action to take. Every week connecting with friends, family, and strangers, every week creating calling waiting and listening for new music to arrive, exploring deeper this formation a triangle of instruments to be performing on.
These concerts have given me so much, and it has been my pleasure to play and give everything I have to the listeners. This album is a glimpse, short edits of my favorite musical moments from the last six weeks. It is somehow broad and cohesive at the same time. Nothing could be mixed after the fact, so only a few small edits and some minimal mastering have altered what you are hearing.
I would love for you to join me at my next concert, same time and same place every week. Saturdays at 21:30 (Berlin Time) via my facebook music page:
Wishing you health and happiness in the coming year
