Rise In Power Majesty

peace and unconditional revolutionary love

i don't have answers only more questions. it is hard to accept, it is difficult to believe, it is unbelievable to process. a brilliant energetic and vibrant being. a truth. a light. a gemini twin ;). a fire untamed. a comrade. fierce warrior emcee. a revolutionary that stood for what he cared for and urged others to fight. a rebel rouser. a beautiful. challenging challenger. champion of self. our friend. our voice. our leader among leaders of movements. too much and not enough to say. love, light, healing power to the family, to friends, to lovers, to enemies. we continue to love you.

from Daniel Majesty Sanchez sister
To all of Daniel's friends, fans and followers,
I am his sister.
It saddens me to report that Danny passed away in Las Vegas, on Tuesday October 4th. 
At this time we do not have much information and we are trying the process this. 
I will post more details in the future.
If you have anything you can share with me about his last days in Vegas I would appreciate the information.
Not sure how he would have wanted the news to be shared, but this is the best I can do.
I love you Danny!

'The art of emcee'ing' door spiritchild
revolutionaire artiest (emcee, producer, dj) uit New York 
black gold blue gold tour 2016 pt.2

Deze workshop toont je een weg om verder te gaan dan stijl en vorm en echt als water te zijn met jouw flow, van pen tot optreden tot product. 
* Hoe kan je structuur en concepten transformeren tot een complete creatieve compositie? 
* Hoe kan je de kunst van het freestylen en vertellen van verhalen beheersen en een vakkundig optreden geven dat je volledig lichaam en het publiek betrekt? 
* Hoe kan je jouw artistieke identiteit uitbouwen en koesteren?
Voor de artiest die wil groeien in de kunst van het emcee’en door praktische, hands-on tips over het schrijven tot het brengen en het creëren van een artistieke gemeenschap. 

Meer over spiritchild: 

Als revolutionaire artiest uit the South Bronx doorheen Brooklyn, gebruikt spiritchild kunst om een culturele revolutie te cultiveren doorheen de wereld. De eclectische en experimentele fusie van ‘true school’ hip hop, funk, electronica en jazz van deze artiest blijft de grenzen doorbreken van de muziek scène. spiritchild brengt de frequencies over van J Dilla die thee drinkt met Sun Ra, schildert de silhouetten van Nina Simone en remixt El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz ook gekend als Malcolm X. Niemand deelt tijd en ruimte zonder geraakt te worden in lichaam, geest, hart en ziel.

Als solo artiest, sinds 1992 en als ritmisch dichter van de hip hop fusie band Mental Notes , sinds 1999, gebruikt spiritchild muziek om conversaties te openen en tot actie aan te zetten rond sociale en milieurechtvaardigheid. Naast het uitbrengen van verschillende solo albums en band opnames, had spiritchild de eer om samen te werken met een waaier aan artiesten van de revolutionaire ‘spoken word’ activisten The Last Poets, Amiri Baraka, grammy award genomineerde Maya Azucena, Les Nubians, The Coup, Dead Prez tot Brooklyn's Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. 

Bijdragen tot de muzikale en sociale hartslag van jongeren is de kern van het levenswerk van deze artiest. Als programmaleider en consultant voor Art Start en Urban Art Beat, internationale pedagoog en spreker heeft spiritchild uitgebreid ervaring in het ontwikkelen en leiden van workshops en programma’s rond hip hop pedagogie, songwriting and artiestontwikkeling. Hij is tevens de bedenker van het internationale hip hop gemeenschapsprogramma ‘The c.i.p.h.e.r.’ dat erkend en ondersteund is door het ‘Erasmus+ youth in action programma’ van de Europese Commissie.
