Reclaim the Thunder: Support One of Our Grads

Taina Asili, who earned her MA in Transformative Language Arts at Goddard, is a singer-songwriter activist, who’s now raising funds to tour with her band, NY based international ensemble Taína Asili y la Banda Rebelde, next fall in the US and Europe. The campaign is to fund free performances for social justice organizations, community centers and schools. As Taina explains,

“Our group has a long history of bringing a radical voice to the arts in the form of musical performances and workshops. Our Kickstarter campaign offers our backers a unique opportunity to support a distinctive and powerful model of connecting art and social change. With your support we will commune to create transformative spaces to inspire those working for necessary change, and bring the inspiration we gather from their work back with us to our own communities.”

Support the campaign, and see a wonderful video, featuring the astonishing music of Taina and her band.
