An UPDATED Note from Avokado Artists on COVID-19

 

 Dear Friends,

 

It seems we have turned - or perhaps are in the midst of turning - a corner in the pandemic.

 

While we believe the CDCs mask lifting rules have come too soon, we are heartened by the real-life effacacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, and ae happy to report that the Avokado family, including our artists are now fully vaccinated.

 

So we are happy to announce that our artists and events will be slowing returning to stages soon!  Please check out individual Artists Pages for tour dates.


We are also continuing to present virtual programs for your enjoyment, edification and comfort, including the spectacular concert film Lost In The Desert Sky: Kayhan Kalhor In Memory of Mohammed Reza Shajarian

We are also continuing to present virtual programs via ¡Globalquerque! for your enjoyment, edification and comfort, including the spectacular concert film Lost In The Desert Sky: Kayhan Kalhor In Memory of Mohammed Reza Shajarian (May 21 - 23).   Filmed in the Silk Road desert city of Kashan, Iran, we are presenting this EXCLUSIVE New Mexico screening (and all our ¡Globalquerque! virtual programming) free.  

We are also in the midst of editing our documentary series 
¡Globalquerque! Sojourns and will be streaming the first episode in June!  You can also watch (or rewatch) the ¡Globalquerque! Cross-Culture Crossover stream, which debut September 30, 2020, on our YouTube channel.  Ani Cordero and Nohe & Sus Santos both released cool new singles (see below) and Nation Beat released a new remix single, "Alguna Cantan (Ill Chemist Dreambeat Mix)" and band leader and drummer/percussionist extraordanaire is featured in the latest issue of Modern Drummer Magazine!

 

In closing we uurge you to stay informed, vigilant and cautious, and to know we continue to have our community in our hearts and minds and and hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and sound.

 

The Avokado Artists Family continues to be be hard hit by the epandemic, but we remain strong in our belief in the power of art and music to pull us together and pull us through this difficult period.   


And although we make our livings largely based on social gatherings and although more of us each day are getting vaccinated, we implore you to continue to: 

 

- WEAR A MASK
- PHYSICAL DISTANCE

- STAY IN PLACE IF POSSIBLE

We also beseech you to GET THE VACCINE.

We would invite you to support not only our family of artists, but artists everywhere by buying or streaming their music, buying their merchandise and work, and simply staying in touch. If you have the means, there are many organizations  to which you can donate that are helping artists of all disciplines get through., including Avokado Artists. See link below for a list of organizations.


In the meantime, we are hard at work on ¡Globalquerque! Sojourns, a 5-Part documentary series debuting spring 2021. You can also watch (or rewatch) the ¡Globalquerque! Cross-Culture Crossover stream, which debut September 30, 2020, on our YouTube channel.  Ani Cordero and Nohe & Sus Santos both released cool new singles (see below) and Nation Beat Head honcho and drummer/percussionist extraordanaire is feature in the latest issue of Modern Drummer Magazine!  We have some other online happenings (see below) and hope you will tune in from the comfort of your homes and let the music do what it does best: lift us up, bring us together and heal.

Stay tuned... 

Peace, Love and Health,
Tom Frouge
