In November 2017, Cornell Coley and Kenny Kozol convened outstanding international artists and produced "The Soul of Latin Jazz" a  powerful concert with dance, poetry and visual art.


In 2018, we expanded the project, added Sandra "Sasi" Marcelino to the team and launched the KECOSA COLLECTIVE Together, we produced "Soul Synergy Live!"   ***2018 -trailer below***

"RHYTHM RECIPIES" - A PUBLIC PERFORMANCE & DRUM CIRCLE SERIES


January, February & March 2022

​~Details TBA~


   Enjoy the power of the drum as world-drums are featured in a thought-provoking 3-event performance series of poetry, rhythm, melody, harmony, movement and stories, inspired by drums of the African cultural diaspora.

 

   Immediately after each performance, a drum circle brings out the spirit and creativity of the audience. Master facilitator Otha Day leads the conversation  with his unique "Drum to Talk" drum circle.                        


   The performance and "Drum to Talk" sessions challenge you to lock in on new directions and your individual ability to reclaim, retool and be renewed! Survive and thrive!


No experience necessary! We will have drums or bring your own! Ages 12 and up!

In this latest stage of the CORONA VIRUS, I am taking precautions at all in-person presentations and performances, with limits on social distancing, instrument sharing and wiping down instruments.
