StreetcredMusic: Lara Bello, Tribute To Federico Garcia Lorca, NYC

It was my pleasure to attend this wonderful performance by Lara Bello Saint John's Lutheran Church, NYC
   ....the poetry and letters of  Federico Garcia Lorca

Lara Bello
  ..the tribute was presented with all the dignity and elegance and musical perfection it deserved.
........Lara and guitarist, Eric Kurimski, frankly overwhelmed me.

Lara designed her gown to be a part of this tribute.
as seen in these photos
In addition to her voice, performance art, and creativity, it was quite clear that this hero of her homeland, holds a special place in her heart...Amazing show. the finish of the performance Lara distributed (in small envelopes) to her audience, messages from Federico, I will not open mine, until.....

....every time I see her, she amazes me.

StreetcredMusic: Release, The First Pianowomen Video, Tessa Lena

I met, Tessa Lena online, we were both harassing Spotify.
.....about two years ago?

If we had not met then, I suspect we would have met fighting some other battle against a giant corporation... against the dehumanizing of us all, with the force feeding of technology we are all subjected to....She's so cool, she prefers phone calls to text messages!
    .....and BTW, her tech skills are off the charts....Her Music too.

Tessa is an experimental artist. Her melodies and her lyrics are woven to cast a spell as she gets her message out. Her performances are as visual as they are musical.

I wanted her to be in the first #Pianowomen video because she will continue to weave the web I hope to trap my readers in, and bring all of these wonderful women, musicians from all over the world, who are in NYC, the attention they deserve.

     Enjoy her video...Tessa Lena 'Baby Robots'

StreetcredMusic: Release, The First Pianowomen Video, Kayce Laine

I met Kayce Laine 2012, she was playing keys and doing backup vocals for 
..........Gio Moretti. We were filming Gio's gig for my doc film.

I chose Kayce to be in the first shoot of Pianowomen, for her talent of course, and she's a friend. Kayce has been exposed to music her entire life, her dad is a wonderful musician....and she truly sets the bar for Pianowomen you will see. 

Kayce Laine, Live
 I wanted the three 'original' Pianowomen to be diverse in their styles, and to bring their original music.

I knew we would get some gems with this project and we hit the jackpot right from the jump!

Please enjoy, the first Pianowomen video: 
    ........Kayce Laine, "Echo"

>>While my docfilm remains on the shelf, until we can all get together for a showing, and final edit, I will continue to use my resources and continue with these marvelous women.

feel free to comment....

StreetcredMusic: Op/Ed .. Tessa Lena

Social theory and pain in the ass made simple, from 'Tessa Makes Love'

Tessa Lena

 "Since I feel very passionate about human ability to see beyond our differences, here is what occupies my mind. I have a very distinct feeling that somebody is hard at work directing the public conversation about racism and historical injustices toward a place that is both painful and not productive. People get to yell at each other and maybe vent and maybe hurt each other a little more but nothing gets fixed fundamentally. Who wins? Assholes."

 Fact: America has a long history of treating non-whites horrendously and building wealth on the backs of “the other.” To be fair, the practice was not started in America. It was started, as far as geography and known history go, in different places in Eurasia. A lot earlier, and with a lot less focus on skin color. By humans. There are many wonderful ways to dehumanize and consume “the other,” race is just one recent invention. Of humans.

Tessa Lena
 "I believe, also very passionately, that the decisive factor is not skin color or even culture (even though culture weighs a lot more in this case) but what’s in the head. If there is a bug in the head, one can lynch a slave, burn a witch, kill a Muslim, and go to bed with a smile. The “other” can be worth hating or disregarding for many reasons: gender, religion, and yes, skin color. As long as the eyes looking at you belong to a person with a dull soul, you are annoying, and you don’t count. And if you dare open your mouth... God."
 Europeans (and Asians) were probably the first groups of people to enthusiastically embrace human alienation from nature and abandon “local” in favor of building massive empires. Europeans certainly popularized the idea and exported it world-wide, and it not surprising that “white people” are known for the brand. However, it is a trap.
I have a theory that as a species, we are simply not capable of maintaining balanced, non-abusive empires. It is beyond our mental ability, even if our minds want to own everything. Empires are too big and too abstract, it is impossible to love a hundred million people, while it is also impossible to treat people fairly without love. Theoretical morals don’t work, ever. They can’t work. I think that a couple thousand years will pass and this grand empire-building experiment will be over, but we are here now, obviously, and we can’t just console ourselves with theory, we still need to solve problems effectively.

 So yes, there is a problem of institutional racism in the U.S. and it’s ridiculous. I am convinced that fundamentally, it is rooted in centuries of misinterpreting the indigenous organization of life–but even though it is probably true, we can’t expect everybody to dig that deep, digging deep takes time and effort, and people are known for not trying to understand shit unless it hurts.

 Here’s where assholes come in, in a new role though. The phrase “white privilege” is, in my mind, a new weapon of an evil genius. By giving people this catch phrase, you don’t solve ANYTHING but direct the very real anger and hurt against a very broad category of people including people who are just minding their business without being particularly evil. That’s divide and conquer at its best. The evil ones, the ones who carry the most responsibility for today’s injustices, won’t care about the rhetoric and TED presentaions, and the non-evil ones will get hurt and snap back, as humans do. While people yell at each other on Facebook and perpetuate hurt feelings, assholes keep doing their thing.
>>>>>" That’s my feeling about it, anyway. I don’t think there is any other way besides Love. And solving concrete problems with minimal hate."

Me, Pete Carma "how lucky I am to have a shared trust with the most talented creative women on the music scene, who also are out spoken about the issues of the day".
