A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended and supported our May 15 concert, Austin In The World: A Day Of Global Grooves. My Exotic Other, with special guests Oliver Rajamani, Alex Coke, Rey Arteaga, and Joanna Ramirez, played a wonderful show. Video by Yellow Dog Films will be made available, and will help to bring attention to Kenny Dorham’s Backyard, the outdoor venue that is an important part of East Austin’s African American Heritage District. If you’d like to contribute to our crowd-funding campaign to support this work, go to:

PK joins Peggy Stern at Central Market Westgate on May 22.

The unifying theme for all of PK’s projects is community, building it, strengthening it, celebrating it.
