Post-Performance Q & A with the Artists

Based in the Bay Area and led by singer / songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Rupa Marya, their music is a mixture of musical styles ranging from reggae to chanson to punk, rooted in blues and touching on folk, jazz and a wide range of world music. They create a sound that pulsates with the pluralism of Bay Area culture, celebrating life through a wide musical palette that pulls from over a decade of playing street parties, festivals and symphonic concerts through 29 countries with songs in 5 languages. Under Rupa’s direction, the band creates a live experience that is a manifestation of a world beyond nations, where the heart of humanity beats louder than anything that divides us.
