100% of our proceeds from this album will go to Athens Immigrant Rights Coalition (www.athensimmigrantrights.org

A little while back, my wife excitedly told me about someone she had met through friends. He's a shaman! she proclaimed. His name is Beto, and he's from Mexico. And he is a shaman, even if he wouldn't call himself by this name. He works tirelessly as an advocate for making people's lives better, whether they are from vulnerable groups or they are decision-makers who would benefit from more compassion, from recognition of our shared commonality. This inner light is reflected in his music. I am so glad this session happened; our improvisations unfolded with the magic I love so deeply. Please enjoy, and thanks for listening.
