But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Sunday, April 12th – 4:30 pm
live streamed performance:
Kaylah Marin and Deirdre Washington
Silent Revolution in Prose and Song

No in-store audiences are allowed during this pandemic, but click through to the full post (or scroll down if you’re already in it) for a live stream link, and to contribute to the musicians’ much needed payday.
          Kaylah wrote and performed as a child with her father, jazz saxophonist Philip Marin. He instilled in her a love of music and dance rich within her Central American Garifuna roots. A powerful songwriter and vocalist, she has worked with Narada Michael Walden, and her single “Oh Baby Please” debuted at number 3 on the dance Billboard chart, maintaining a top ten spot for over a month. Kaylah performed for human rights activist Dolores Huerta’s  “Weaving Moments Together” benefit concert celebrating Huerta’s 80th birthday at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. She scored music for the award winning documentary “Texas Gold” and did the voice-over and score for “Just Children,” winner of four international film festival awards. She has been awarded the Garifuna International Indigenous Film Festival’s Ambassador of Music Award.

          Deidre Washington, Poet and Healer, who could not be here for the performance due to the continuing tragedy that is the coronavirus pandemic, and that has claimed five souls from her family alone, is a poet, Kaylah’s partner in life and in performance, and DSW Industries / Organic Skin Care’s founder and owner. Our sympathies go out to Deirdre and her loved ones.
