ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2013 Dance & Bmore paid a visit to a Baltimore Housing Project in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. We wondered if the creativity of the transforming neighborhood had reached the long time residences. What we discovered is although artists had come through in the past, none had stayed. Why? Maybe they didn't feel they were making a difference or perhaps they didn't feel safe. The buildings had it's share to challenges so the front desk staff have bullet proof vest and carry guns.

In-spite of all this, the spirit of the elders in the building though worn is vibrant. They look out for each other, are generous and thoughtful even though sometimes they Fuss with each other. As Dance & Bmore began holding occasional jam session in the community room, it created a bubble of light and good will that was a stark contrast to the lobby with it's stress and tension as people checked in through security. In talking with the elders they shared how much singing and dancing with us relieved their stress and made them feel connected to us and each other. They could let go of the offense sometimes needed to navigate a stressful and vulnerable environment. When we had to move our jams to the lobby some of the drama would try to infiltrate our space and our hearts. Artist Director CJay Philip went home one night after our session and thought about this incredible group we had grown to love and what they were challenged with on a daily basis not only in their space but in their minds and penned these words specifically for them. The next week we had them repeat these words and so our mantra was born.

This is a creative Space (Repeat)
A shade Free space (Repeat)
Cause Shade Blocks my Light (Repeat)
And my light Shines Bright (Repeat)
I will not hinder my light (Repeat)
and I celebrate your light (Repeat)
The light within you shines (Repeat)
Brightens our hearts and our mind (Repeat)
Let the light within you shines (3x)
You shine :)
