Vision Festival 2009 Review
June 30, 2009
DMG reviews this year’s Vision Fest.
Tuesday, June 9th got off to great start with an Opening Invocation featuring Patricia Nicholson doing voice and dance, William Parker on gimbri (4-string African bass) and Hamid Drake on frame drum. Ms. Nicholson is the Vision Fest’s main organizer and the epicenter of good vibes that flow through every Vision Fest that I’ve attended, which is all of them. This was a perfect opening with a ritualistic vibe. Patricia chanted, “Change is Coming” and this is something we can all agree with.
