Episode #17- Shaolin Soul: Foundations of WU [Black History Month Tribute to Music]

In Celebration of Black History Month, a group of us from BK/Vancouver got together to throw an event:

Shaolin Soul:Foundations of WU [A Black History Month Tribute to Music]

At Fortune Sound Club (Vancouver, BC)

The Party concept and Mixtape/Podcast were inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan's "Shaolin Soul" albums, which pay tribute to the Original Songs sampled/that influenced their music.

In a Radio Interview w/ Evolution Radio 107.9, I mentioned that,

'Sampling is like our generation's "Oral Tradition". In Africa, stories are passed along in this manner, and I've realized this is how stories are passed along now, through Music."


In an Effort to pass along the "Music Tradition" a % of our Proceeds are being donated to Templeton Secondary School's Jazz Music Program. Hopefully the proceeds and donated instruments will enrich a child's life and allow them the gift of music, that all should have. 


I hope you Enjoy this mix, it was quite the "Labor of Love"...and marks Black History Month 2011!

Light & Love,

~DJ Lady Lane~

December 11, 2009 11:31 AM PST

December 1st was "World AIDS Day", but One DAY, is not enough to educate and create awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Educating others about HIV/AIDS is something very near & dear to my Life & Heart.

Something that is forgotten about this disease is the LOVE that it involves.
There are all different types of Love, so this Mixtape's Theme is
"Love Stories"...
1st Love, Unrequited Love, Love at First Sight, Painful Love, Puppy Love, Dying Love, Love of Life.....these are all Love Stories....


This Month's MixTape's will be Dedicated to WORLD AIDS...and will carry through the THREAD of LOVE.
