Video: Alia Sharrief "That's All I Do"

Here is a recent video release from California's premier Muslim female hip hop artist, Alia Sharrief. Born and raised in Sacramento, she is now based in Berkeley, CA. With an impressive pedigree, such as opening for Kendrick Lamar in Sacramento, Sharrief is also a community activist. She blew me away at a Zulu Nation Thursday cypher event in Oakland-- a response to the growing gentrification of Oakland's famed monthly First Friday event.  Check out her website for more videos and a free download of her debut album, "Mental Cycles and Mood Swings," at

NYC: Ronald K. Brown's Evidence Dance

Tune in Friday May 30 to hear an interview with Ronald K. Brown, artistic director of Evidence Dance, in preparation for his world premier of new choreography The Subtle One next week at The Joyce Theater, June 3-8, 2014.

"The mission of Evidence is to promote understanding of the human experience in the African Diaspora through dance and storytelling and to provide sensory connections to history and tradition through music, movement, and spoken word, leading deeper into issues of spirituality, community responsibility and liberation."

"Brown’s dances derive from his interpretation of the human condition and refer to numerous cultural sources. These sources include history, traditions, and dance forms from Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa, combined with kinetic storytelling, modern and urban dance movement. Through dance Brown explores the history of blacks in America and passes on African culture to a new generation. His stories and movement express traditional themes of community, ritual, and collective experience. He wants audiences to see commonplace subjects in new ways, to open their minds to new experiences, and to foster tolerance and spiritual growth."  –
