Indigo Lounge just....IS.

To those of you who came to Indigo Lounge on October 18th, thank you so much for your support (Ika you're the greatest)! It was one of those nights were everything flowed together in harmony. I set the tone with the first piece titled "Indigo." I must say, everyone seemed in tune with themselves and their fellow artist. Indigo Lounge is a melting pot of the L.A. art scene at its best. All I can say is, you should've been there! I would like to thank all of the artists who did their thang! A shout out to Blake and his crew from the C.S.U.N music program who jammed hard all night long. Folks are always so amazed on how young and talented these Katz really are. They did an awesome job! This time we really utilized other musicians and singers in addition to the house band and poets. Although an intimate crowd, the vibe was really powerful to say the least. It feels great to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and come to a place surrounded by real talent, positivity, and non-pretentious energy. Overall, it was a colorful evening full of pleasant surprises. Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.This may be one of L.A.'s best kept secrets. And you know what? I like it. Unfortunately and fortunately, Indigo Lounge is going on hiatus due to the holiday season. However, rumor is I may be coming back stronger than ever with a residency at 2nd St. Jazz. Don't sleep. Stay connected!

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!

I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …
