Next Saturday, January 16, Maggie Brown, singer, educator and oral history participant, will be featured with Ari Brown at Orbert Davis' Chicago Jazz Philharmonic in the show "DuSable to Obama; Chicago's Black Metropolis," at the South Side Cultural Center at 9pm.

The following Saturday, January 23rd, Shu Shubat, another incredible participant of the project, and other talented musicians will be holding EarthGong Bath: Dream In at the South Chicago Cultural Center at 4pm. "The candlelit evening will begin with the delicate and ethereal “Ringing of the Bells” ceremony to usher in dreams and intentions for the coming year, followed by an extended EarthGong Bath, a Lullaby and a Samulnori drumming performance with our musical guests." I'm really looking forward to it.
