Nov 23, 2020 | Our Purpose

we don’t have a studio.

….a bar or a restaurant with a corner stage.

We have a rickshaw. 

Not just a rickshaw – we have special rickshaw built to move music.

Transport music..


To people that need it

like they need a steady stream of

blood and oxygen.

They need it to cope,

  for relief, 

  for hope,

  for commiseration.

  To live. 

We are grinding through an epic of human pain, fear, and

events that shake and disrupt

with little to grab and hold – little to steady

the quaking soul.

Music can steady.

Music – live music.

It can move us all toward a steady center

where we are shielded / where a respite of

peace and transformation wraps softly

sweetly and gently soothing the frayed edges

of our delicate human souls –

– steadies us,

replenishing us with hope and courage.

The strength to be what we have to be for each other.

A humanity of souls that are afraid – yes,

but not afraid to reach out and around each other.

United in our frailty, but emboldened by our shared


Determined to survive.

With a little melody

   coming from deep in that place in humans we share

it has to reach our chords and lips – seeping out.

We humans can’t help it – it’s our shared medium of

pain and hope –

leaking as a thread of joy from our troubled hearts

– a way to unite as a species and sing the same pleas

– together,

Wishes and dreams that pull us forward

from the agonies and dark swirling

that pull us down.
