Celebrating Women Artists on SWAN Day, March 26th


What do you know about SWAN Day? Well, I didn't know anything at all about it until I received an interesting email from my friends at Liberated Muse telling me all about it! SWAN - Support Women Artists Now Day is a new international holiday that celebrates women artists. The celebration starts on the last Saturday in March
and lasts throughout the remainder of March and April.
The official date for The 4th Annual SWAN Day this year is March 26, 2011! 
The main goal of the holiday is to focus attention on the work of women artists and what the world would be like if women's art and perspectives
were integrated into all aspects of our lives! 

Will you be celebrating SWAN Day in your community? If so, what activities are you planning? Write me at sonjal@sonikaimaging.com and tell me about it!

NEW MUSIC: "BLACK INVENTORS" BY DARNGOOD and ENOCH 7TH PROPHET

Today, my friend, DC activist, Mental Salvation Radio host, and hip hop artist, Enoch 7th Prophet sent me a really great song absolutely perfect for Black History Month called "Black Inventors"! The song, produced by DJ S.E., was written by Enoch and DarnGood to educate people about black inventions and the inventors behind the work. "As artist we feel like an important part of African American History, was not being reflected in hip hop music today. So we decided to do something about it." After hearing the track from DJ S.E., DarnGood wrote his verse, recorded the vocals and sent it to Enoch. Once, Enoch heard DarnGood's verse, he approached the record
from a different angle in paying respect to female black inventors.
"We wanted to paint murals in the minds of people with our lyrics and
encourage them to go do the research on what we are rhyming about." 
 Definitely Hip Hip education at its best!
I love it, so check it out!

CDS WITH A MESSAGE

 
Music is one of my loves in life and is for so many people around the world! It is one of the true ways in which people can express themselves! Since back in the day, music has been one of our most important tools to express our views on everything from love to politics! In the February, 2011 issue of Essence Magazine, an article called "Freedom Songs", written by B.J., caught my attention! The article recommends 5 CDs you can download that blend politics with art and soul! The list includes 4 classics from back in the day and only one newcomer. Check it out:
  1. YOUNG, GIFTED AND BLACK (1971) - Aretha Franklin
  2. WHAT'S GOING ON (1971) - Marvin Gaye
  3. SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE (1976) - Stevie Wonder
  4. THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL (1998) - Lauryn Hill
  5. WAKE UP! (2010) - John Legend and The Roots
