Awamaki is a Peruvian NGO based in Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Awamaki works with impoverished Quechua women weavers to improve their skills and increase their access to market, thereby revitalizing an endangered weaving tradition. We aim to harness tourism and the international marketability of Andean textiles to find a market for this traditional craft in a modernizing global economy.
A robber's parlor record player duet, an antique travelling band from New York City, and then Michael Musika peaking out from the hideout for a moment or two. Pretty songs. Some sweet medicine for the imagination and a subtle demonstration of witchcraft. Springtime will be near. Come pass the time with us..
Bluesix 3043 24th Street San Francisco, California
@7:45: Henri Rabbit ...a project of Kaitlyn Smith with Jeremy Harris
@9:00 Michael Musika the big bad wolf, isadora duncan, scrooge mcduck, lao tzu, and memphis minnie convene on top of a mountain at dawn, to witness a duel to the death between an idealistic cut throat and a political romanticist. The cutthroat wins. Cheers. Smoke. Ecstatic Laughter.

With hushed vocals and unexpected twists, his songs are vulnerable, clever and eccentric. Jascha will be joined by Dina Maccabee and special guests to celebrate the release of his album *A Cure For Sleep*—and the launch of an open-source songwriting blog.

"Full Pink Moon: This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month's celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn." farmersalmanac.com/full-moon-names
