Baltimore’s creative community is coming together to support CeaseFire Baltimore, which has already demonstrated its effectiveness in stopping the shootings and killings in our streets. Some of Baltimore’s best artists will celebrate the work organizations and individuals are doing to end violence in Baltimore and take the pledge to use their art to help raise awareness about violence in Baltimore. The event is called Artivism Day, and it will take place this Sunday, March 4, 5-8pm at Baltimore’s Impact Hub. We are joined in-studio by its conveners: Sheila Gaskins, founder of Artparthied, and Kenneth Morrison, Executive Director of Dew More Baltimore.

Celebrating the Life of Jimi Hendrix at the Baltimore Creative Alliance

December 13, 2017 – A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was a musical giant and genius who left this life much too early. He most often goes unrecognized for how he changed the nature of the musical forms of rock and blues. To celebrate the life and work of Jimi Hendrix, Baltimore’s own Navasha Daya, Fanon Hill, and Matt Chase produced a musical tribute to Hendrix for a performance at the Baltimore Creative Alliance. The event was  called “Navasha Daya Presents A Soulful Rock and Roll tribute to Jimi Hendrix,” and it features some of greatest musicians in town. We were joined in studio with Navasha, Fanon, Matt and jazz legend Lafayette Gilchrest. So sit back and enjoy the conversation and the music.
