Description: Tribal Link and Thomas Rochon will host a benefit jazz concert at Rochon’s private SoHo loft.

Tribal Link provides essential assistance to indigenous peoples worldwide that seek to take their issues beyond the local to the international stage. They cannot do this important work without the compassionate assistance of others who are not only concerned with the present, but also with the future generations.
Roberto “Mukaro” Borrero, a member of the Taino – indigenous peoples from the Caribbean – will open the evening with an indigenous Taino song that acknowledges the “peoples respect for winds of change”.
The benefit jazz concert will follow this opening and include both covers of popular jazz tunes as well as a selection of original pieces. The musicians, which have all donated their talent and time to the event, include: Joe Fonda on bass, “Sweet” Sue Terry on saxophone and clarinet, Michael Rabinowitz on bassoon, George Schuller on drums and Mike Mussillami on guitar.
An informal reception will follow the concert.
Start Time: 06:30pm
Date: 2014-09-27
End Time: 10:30pm
