Interview: Gabrilla Ballard-Thakore to Play Sept. 10th Peña Rebelde at e5
Come share your energies at the 5th monthly Peña Rebelde at the encuentro 5 movement space on September 10th at 7 p.m., a gathering of souls in verse and rebellion. Gabrilla Ballard-Thakore, a recent transplant to Boston from New Orleans, will share her singer-songwriter creations. Gabrilla's music, an imaginative hybrid of her musical inspirations--from Bob Marley to Nina Simone - will delve into where she comes from and where she's going, not only as a musician, but as an activist and mother.
In keeping with tradition, the Peña will feature food from New Orleans, and drinks of course.
Gabrilla's husband Maanav Thakore, aka DJ Inquilab, is rumored to be deejaying the event, and others are welcome to share their song speeches and verse and whatever else suits them.
Admission is a suggested $5 to help support the artist and the e5 space.
