Good afternoon Lindsay,
Transdiaspora Network is a nonprofit organization conducting
culturally-oriented HIV prevention activities in Brooklyn. We communicate
with youth and empower them to develop their sense of personal
responsibility in their relationship with the community. Our interest in HIV
prevention stems from the desire to go beyond the current biomedical and
individualist approach, and to encompass a more holistic strategy through
dance, music, storytelling and photography. We bring a new social meaning to
culture and tradition.
Details of the concert are as follows:
Date: Thursday May 12th, 2011
Time: 7pm until midnight
Venue: Canal Room 285 West Broadway New York, NY 10013
Tickets can be purchased online for $25 at
Or at the door the day of the event for $30
Cyrille Aimée, finalist in the 2010 Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition, will
be performing. Internationally renowned and praised for her unparalleled
abilities, Cyrille is an undeniable talent in the modern age of jazz. We are
honored that she will be lending her talent in support of our cause, and we
hope you will consider sharing with us this important, mission-driven event.
Past benefit concert performances include Cuban diva Xiomara Laugart, jazz
legend Yosvany Terry, avant-garde singer-songwriter Pavel Urkiza, talented
vocalist Sofia Tosello, and acclaimed Colombian Billboard star Marta Gómez.
Each year, we have attracted an ever-increasing following of music lovers
and socially conscious New Yorkers.
Attached I've included our brochure for more information about our mission
and programs, and the event's poster for details about the concert.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need
further information. Your valuable support and partnership will help our
much-needed work with at-risk adolescents, and fulfill our program's promise
to advance HIV prevention, one teen at a time.
Thanks for your amazing work on HIV awareness, and I'm looking forward to
hearing from you soon.
All the best,
Federica Rangel | Public Relations and Communication Director
