#MYLEGACY: Carolyn Malachi & The Curators of Hip Hop 2016 Tour

This week we’re welcoming DC-based vocalist Carolyn Malachi aboard the Crescent to Atlanta, Georgia.

Carolyn is a genre-bending artist who embodies the positive impact that she aims to have on her listeners. Over the masterful sounds of jazz, go-go and R&B achieved by her band, Carolyn’s lyrics encourage her followers to respect the stories of those who came before and leave a legacy for those who come after.

Mi ritmo: Exploring Afro-Latino music in the US

One of my earliest memories is of my father in his element behind his turntables, blasting his music as I attempted to fall asleep. My Dad, the DJ, has always been passionate about music, and naturally passed this on to my brothers and me. He made it a point to give us a peek into the artists behind the music, the history behind the production of different hits and memories from his childhood in which music, as it does for all of us, contributed to the soundtrack of his life.

Diez consejos para un gran viaje multigeneracional

Conocí el encanto de viajar con personas de todas las edades desde pequeña. Mi padre, un periodista y también agente de viajes dominicano y residente en Puerto Rico, organizaba excursiones a la Florida y a República Dominicana, en la época en que esta era casi la única manera de viajar. Así que crecí acostumbrada a tener de compañeros de viajes familias completas con niños, abuelitos que viajaban con sus nietos y muchos jóvenes, de esos mismos que de generación en generación han pasado de uno a otro la frase célebre de “estoy aburrido, ¿qué puedo hacer para entretenerme?”.
