I'm thrilled to announce that I am one of 2014's MAP Fund Grantees!!!! With their beautiful support, I'll be creating a new body of music that I have been dreaming of writing for YEARS... looking at core elements of Ethiopian Jazz, and working on a new deconstructive body of music based on it. To add to the excitement, I'll be studying Ethiopian poetry as well. I'm so grateful to the MAP Fund and to my fiscal sponsors, Fractured Atlas. Oh YEAH!!!!!
