Yoko K fuses music and social change at TEDxPotomac

Posted by Katina on May 22, 2010 at 1:45 am

It is very hard to put to words what Yoko K brings to the world of music and social change. This Thursday I had the joy of attending TEDxPotomac, a day-long gathering of thinkers, performers, activists, scientists, artists, etc. giving presentations on “Beyond Politics: Innovation, Inspiration, and Insight.”

Electronic musician, vocalist, and social activist Yoko Kamitani did a musical presentation in which she mixed the voices of people from around the world into an electronic music arrangement about genocide in Rwanda (you had to hear it to believe the genius).

Learn more about Yoko K’s presentation at TEDxPotomac. Tweet @TEDxPotomac and ask them to make Yoko K a TedTalk. It was that good . . .  Check out Yoko K online at www.aphrodizia.net and http:/home/katinara/public_html/katinaraestapleton.com/twitter.com/yokokami.
