A musical journey in, around and through the Afrikan Diaspora.
Thursdays at 8 pm are all about having fun exploring the world of music. Tonight's run of Sak Pa Se! will be no different.
Music is the home where culture and expression collide and combine. Join the fusion and groove to tunes ranging from Charley Pride to Odetta, Living Colour to Dionne Farris, Oumou Sangare to Emeline Michel and tons of folk in between.
Join Paula the Small sitting in for radio-diva Keller tonight, on-line at kboo.fm or 90.7 FM Portland.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Anthology for you and a friend. Pick up a copy and drop it off at your local youth community centre/shelter/space. The Kicked Out Anthology was printed by Homofactus Press.
