Below you will find a wonderful moment that occurred during The Sweetest Song Festival’s “Singing the Gods program.” The clip features a group of our Sweetest Singers closing out the April 30th program at the Woody Tanger Auditorium in Brooklyn College. Jeggae “Winston” Hoppie made the suggestion for all the performers to share a rhythm together. It was a blending of voice, rhythm, movement and language that found room for individual expression–America at it’s finest. Happy fourth of July, Brooklyn! Enjoy!

Surfer, New Yorker and Freedom Tower ironworker, Timmy Brennan lost everything in the Breezy Point fires during Hurricane Sandy. Through the kindness of strangers, he is given a new board and finds hope riding the same ocean that shattered his community.
See this film this evening at “From the Floodlines” at Galapagos Art Space. We will have both the director and subject of this amazing short doc on hand for a Q&A after the screening.
