Calling ALL female musicians, poets, singers, lyricists, and performance artists!!! This month's jam celebrates the rich legacy of women in music. We're gathering together on this night for DLAL's first women-only jam. We're playing ALL the instruments and singing ALL the songs! This is our night!

About our features:

Teronda "TT" Barnes, known as "the female Questlove", has been drumming since the age of 10. Having developed her craft as a musician in church, TT plays several instruments well. Among other endeavors, she currently plays for JaE 'the artist'.

Adwoa Tacheampong is a vocalist, drummer, dancer & actor who has been performing since the age of 10. She has been playing Afro-Cuban Batá & studying Afro-Cuban Orisha Dance since 2003. She has been dancing Akom Akan (Ghana) dance for 10 years. She currently performs with several companies in the Philadelphia area including PhillyBloco (Brazilian Bloco band), Voices of Africa (African & Folk vocal and percussion group ), and Tambonito (Afro-Cuban & Afro-Brazilian educational music group) as well as being on call for other musical and acting opportunities. Adwoa plays several instruments including, but not limited to Batá, surdo, sekere, sakara & agogo. She is an avid photographer & writer.

So ladies, bring your congas, beat machines, tambourines, shekeres, guitars, basses, poems, lyrics, horns, stringed instruments, bells, hands, feet, and voices to help us cultivate the soundscape. I think we're going to create pure magic!
