This year commemorates my 20th year Soulful journey from the Oakland, CA to Salvador da Bahia, Brasil in '94. Since then I've traveled back maybe 6 or 7 times always unearthing, educating and building through Community-Arts activism, deeply inspired by this special kinship - a powerful creative legacy that continues to move my Heart!  Feliz Aniversario Ilê Aiyê"o' charmada Liberdade,"  eu vou sempre amor Olodum e bom Axe  Malé DebaléSalve movimientos Blocos Afros de Salvador!
