Michael Franti your music has inspired me for years ~ I danced in the mud & rain at Austin City Limits to your groove. And we have mutual friends in Maranda & Ocean Pleasant. 100% agree with everything you wrote. Wonder if you might join the Hope Domino listening tour. With growing support & collaboration (TED, Welcoming America & more listed in the link), for most of 2017 we will be traveling around the USA exploring culture, identity and change through inclusive community events that seek to highlight our common humanity and collectively imagine solutions for the challenges we face together— while promoting hope and joy by connecting and celebrating everyday people making a positive impact.
