We want to invite all beautiful Bay Area community to enjoy this amazing musicians.

About Yissy:

“Yissy Garcia–a composer and drummer- is one of the most powerful artists of this new generation of Cuban musicians. There is a lot of groove in her drumsticks, and a lot of creative impulse in her. At the age of 30, the important things for her are rhythm and the way emotions are trapped by the sound language, as if the drums were just an extension of her body. The important things are ambiguity, the fusion between tradition and avant-garde, her ways of blurring the boundaries of Latin jazz, electronics, funk, R & B, Afro-Cuban music.

Yissy –a daughter of percussionist Bernardo García, founder of Irakere ”

We will have a party where you would have an oportunity to see her play alonside DJ Jigue in a combinacion fusing Jazz, Caribbean rhythms with digital beats and a foundation of AfroCuban percussion.

About DJ Jigüe:

“Dj Jigüe has arrived, and has brought with him the language of tropical afrofuturism. His style has erased the contours of normality, connecting the inhabitants of the Earth. Pulling together Afro-Cuban and electronic rhythms and sounds, he creates a vibrant confluence of spirit-affirming grooves.”

We will have a collaboration of Davin Anthony Thompson, known to his followers as Oakland rapper Do D.A.T., it wasn’t 2Pac’s death or a powerful Public Enemy line that made him want to rap and perform in front of an audience — it was the 1992 hip-hop comedy House Party.

The scene where Kid ‘N Play fired insult-laced rhymes at one another inspired Thompson to write some of his own. “The punch lines clicked with me,” said Thompson, whose rap alias incorporates his initials and serves as a nod to A Tribe Called Quest.

But Thompson is far from a battle rapper, nor is he one for the goofball antics of the aforementioned rapper-actor duo. A veteran of Oakland’s underground, the 29-year-old emcee has rocked rallies and festivals alike with his former group, The Attik, and its socially aware raps. As an artist development instructor at the Bay Unity Music Project in Oakland, he mentors aspiring young musicians, pushing their creative boundaries in the studio and prepping them for the stage. He’s a leader with a keen vision.”

In addition, we’ll hav emusical selections by:
DJLeydis and Juan G
