A Step in the Storm and Rainbow Snake, two tracks from AfuriKo’s album Tao, were chosen by DJ and All About Jazz contributor Mike Jurkovic to be aired on WOOC 105.3 FM‘s program Jazz Sanctuary on May 28, 2019.
WOOC 105.3 FM provides sanctuary for the discussion of a wide range of ideas, to advance its mission of using art and participatory action to promote social and environmental justice and freedom of expression. The radio station covers all of Troy, most of Albany and beyond. It is part of The Sanctuary for Independant Media, a telecommunications production facility dedicated to community media arts, located in an historic former church at 3361 6th Avenue in north Troy, NY. The Sanctuary hosts screening, production and performance facilities, training in media production and a meeting space for artists, activists and independent media makers of all kinds.
Jazz Sanctuary is a wonderful celebration of all that is creative, dedicated to supporting jazz in the Hudson Mohawk region. In line with The Sanctuary for Independent Media’s mission, jazz is an outgrowth of the unique African American experience in America. Jazz Sanctuary transcends the individual to cover the spectrum of creative expression in the world of jazz.
