Fair Saturday

thank you plymouth!

This was Plymouth's first official Fair Saturday that also encompassed Shop Small Saturday. Look at this lovely museum space, The Jenney Grist Mill, I got to perform all day in! This gave my song Ground To Dust amazing context (because it's a grindstone metaphore!) and I got to play with the actual Mill in operation (at times, and very exciting!). Lots of teachable moments because there was a craft table and waterwheel demonstrations all ongoing throughout music, stories and educational exhibits by the Plimoth Bay Cultural Center. Everyone was incredibly friendly too. I had the BEST Day! See you next year!

one little finger

"I could not be more proud of what this important International film will accomplish. To have words I have written and recorded, in my own voice, included among the many voices of inspiration that will perpetuate the One Little Finger message, in music, is a dream come true." ~ Colette O'Connor

Colette was invited to write her feelings about humanity and individual potential, and then she recorded them for inclusion in the film soundtrack:

Julian Lennon, Dave Mason, Alyssa Steinmetz, Von Kopfman, Swathi, Rodney Arbona, Robert Murphy,Heather Caton, Dorothy Burlakowska, Eileen Grubba, Paul Marturano, Mia Kylie, Lori Citro, Liz Abbott, Lili Roquelin, Kathy Sanborn, Jill, Jillmarie Creedon, Jenifer Mahannah, Inka Auhagen, Greg Foley, Eileen Sherman, Deborah Jaffe, Colette O’Connor, Daniela Celella, CharleneThellmann, Bill Caterini, Anne Leighton, Andrea Jennings, Adrian Esposito, May Pang, Sue Shilling, Cindy Paulos, Laurie Ziel

Ability in Disability – Promoting Inclusion & Diversity! 

Over a billion people live with some form of disability. This corresponds to about 15% of the world’s population. People are disabled, not only mentally, physically and emotionally, but by society itself. It is statistically probable that everyone will experience a disability at some point in their life. 

The music is directed by Rupam Sarmah. The soundtrack includes World Folk music of various styles combining with contemporary music and classical music.

Many Grammy and Oscar winning artists collaborated with musicians with disabilities in the making of the soundtrack to support the cause of ability in disability, also featuring Quincy Jones, Julian Lennon, Siedah Garrett, Kechi Okwuchi, Sumitra Guha, Kevin Mackie, Stephen Melillo and Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. The song consists of lyrics in various languages Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, English, and healing mantras. Properly composed vibrational music can heal mind, body and soul.

Some of the tracks in this album are used in special-needs school as music therapy which is helping the children with pain relief and depression. We are continuing our research on frequency based vibrational music and artificial intelligence to help dementia patients and children with autism.

Film festival details speak volumes about the many nominations already achieved:

• Oniros Film Awards®, Italy: 4 Nominations 
WINNER: Best Inspirational Film, Best Song – One Little Finger), Aug 2019

‬ This is an incredibly revealing and affirming film that honestly depicts humanity; with great care and focus on what is and what can be! #OneLittleFinger
