Hey…Hope everyone is doing well… In August I quietly celebrated 10 years with KCRW…It’s not exactly how I thought the anniversary would look…I was planning this elaborate,…

Hey world. It’s been a month…Hope you’ve been staying sane. Some days/weeks are better than others.

I’ve been taking this time to process the changing world around me, and what might my new role be.

This show is a reminder to myself, of who I am, and where I come. The songs are a reflection of my family’s history as lived through music.

These songs have kept me going these past couple of weeks.
