The Line-Up for this year's Anti-Mall: People B4 Profit!
Because music is good for the soul...
"The mission began in the year 2000, to serve as messengers of Mandeng. And carry on the tradition, art, and spirit of not only west Afrika, but all of Afrika. Since then, Balandugu Kan serves as a vehicle which will keep that spirit alive. Through each performance, or event Balandugu Kan honors the Keita family, We also honor all ancestors, because it is with their permission that we use the djembe to bring peace, balance, morality, compassion, and unity. We stand as a revolutionary icon. Balandugu Kan represents liberation, and will continue to serve the community."
"¡Aparato! is a rock band.
The ¡Aparato! sound delivers “post”–punk expression and ventures into ethereal soundscapes that are soothing, yet inspire personal reflection.
¡Aparato! is the creative spirit of music.
¡Aparato! will set you free."
Rosa Martha Zarate
"Le canto a la mujer en pie de lucha, a la tejedora, a la Madre Tonantzin, al bracero, a la solidaridad, a la paz como madre Liberada, como serpiente sagaz. En fin, mi vida se ha escrito a base de estas canciones que con mucho cariño comparte con aquellos corazones que están dispuestos a sentirlas y hacerlas suyas también."
