Reclaim the Thunder Youth Workshop at Warehouse 508
In collaboration with SWOP (SouthWest Organization Project) and Warehouse 508, Taina Asili y la Banda Rebelde will be offering a free workshop for youth called Reclaim the Thunder: Songwriting for Social Change. Taina Asili will discuss methods she has gathered from her 20 year history writing songs that seek to reclaim power, inspire, break barriers and unite. She will then guide participants in a hands-on songwriting exercise, first in turning our ideas into lyrics, and later bringing the word to the song. Taina Asili’s band will be set up as the “house band” for participants to experiment with their creations. This workshop is open to people of all artistic levels from beginner poets to experienced mcees and singers. Join us in this interactive radical music jam to reinvent our world!
