Dear Friends,

Its been a little over three months since the released of our 3rd full length LP “Remittances” (Beatrock Music 2010). There has been a great show of support from friends, fans and the community. The album received positive reviews from bloggers and music critics, and has also been used as a cultural organizing tool for discussing social and political issues that effect working-class immigrant communities.

We’re finally about to release a series of videos that will be available online. We had the great privilege of working with some very talented filmmakers like Jerome Palencia, Eric Tandoc and Tad Nakamura. Jerome shot the first music video for the single “ArtOfficialFreedom”. It took us a few months to finish, so you can peep all my different hairstyles. ET and Tad created a short documentary that discusses the conceptual process that went into making this record, as well as asking me some personal stuff… juicy.

Because of our limited capacity to do national tours, our outreach to listeners is done primarily through the Internet, word-of-mouth, or rocking regional shows. In the next few weeks we’ll be doing a series of performances in the Bay Area and Los Angeles. All of these shows are being organized by progressive organizations that are doing solid work around social justice issues.

I hope you come out and dance with us, sing with us, or simply shake off your stress… Lets reclaim hip-hop culture for the people, and not the materialist media machines! Lets aim to build unity and solidarity between marginalized communities!

-Nomi
