An UPDATED Note from Avokado Artists on COVID-19

 

Dear Friends,

 

There seems to be at least the glimmer of light at the end of the pandemic tunnel.  As the vaccine rolls out we are hopeful that over the next few months we will see much more than a glimmer.   

The US seems to have turned a corner, although the rush to reopen in some states coupled with new variants of the COVID-19 virus is worrisome, as is the vaccine situation in Europe.  We urge 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 th 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: 

 

- WEAR A MASK
- PHYSICAL DISTANCE

- STAY IN PLACE IF POSSIBLE

We also beseech you to REGISTER FOR THE VACCINE and to get it when it becomes available to you.

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

Executive Director
