This is a story of how offering to help turned in to a weekend of learning about a musicians life and the relationships that were built through growing up in the vibrant city of New York.
Seeing Hip Hop culture turn from an underground music to a world wide phenomena and sharing the stage with some of the architects of this music we have come to love.
Nevaris takes us on a historical and interesting journey through his musical roots. Linking together the Rocksteady crew, the birth of Hip Hop, P Funk, Latin percussion techniques, Reggae and Dancehall vocalist Hawkman, Talking Heads and legendary producer Bill Laswell all together through one man; Bernie Worrell (1944 - 2016).
This is a story that must be told and has to be listened to.
Thank you to Nevaris, Sita, Cheyla and Coleen for the lovely weekend!
