Album Notes
The concept for the TRIAD Trust’s ImprovED album was developed with the belief that performing arts are a universal connector; all cultures use music to entertain, educate, and express emotion. Marula’s Shade seeks to build awareness about the extraordinary life changing effects TRIAD’s ImprovED Program is having on local youth in the fight against HIV/AIDS, as well as to highlight the innate musical talent of the artists that make up the troupe.

The album is comprised of original tracks written and composed by TRIAD staff and volunteers; these are the same songs and lessons used by the ImprovED Troupe to educate students. The album was recorded in collaboration with TRIAD volunteers, Joel Hamilton (Producer; Blakroc, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Justin Timberlake) and Marika Hughes (Cellist; Whitney Houston, Yo Yo Ma, Mary J. Blige, Santana, Lou Reed, Ani DiFranco) under the direction of TRIAD’s Program Director Jack Judson, and TRIAD Executive Director Brooke Wurst.

The South African artist/educators are backed by top NYC-based musicians, including Joe Tomino (drums; Matisyahu, Dub Trio), Jordan McLean (trumpet; Fela!, Medeski, Martin & Wood), and Mazz Swift (violin; Jay-Z, Moby, Common).
The goal of Marula’s Shade is to provide TRIAD’s donors and advocates with a tangible commodity that illustrates the positive effects of TRIAD’s programming. The album serves as an income-generating project that will raise money to ensure that ImprovED can continue to inspire the behavioral changes that are reducing the transmission of HIV/AIDS in our program communities.
