DRT•BG First vendor experience at Domo Arigato...

I would like to deem the Domo Arigato Japan Fundraiser a success!

Yesterday was amazing. The Community Garden in the South Bronx was graced with performers, live art, hip-hop music, and dancers. Fundraising all in the name of helping raise money for Japan.

DRT•BGs had their first ever vendor experience, which was so much fun. The neighborhood got their first taste of the movement and it was so crucial to begin the process of spreading the word, face to face to the community. I had an amazing time. The feeling of nostalgia that I got was overwhelming. I miss Japan dearly. Between watching the female Japanese  hip-hop dancers, and sharing stories with performers who lived or visited Japan, there was a common bond wrapped around Nippon. It was undeniable.

Shouts to the lovely, talented Trezure Empire for the invite, Raye 6 for her performance and rocking a Kryptonite Canvas DRT•BG, and Mio Soul for shutting it down with her singing and rappng in Japanese and English. Uber amounts of talent were in that garden. Sugoi.
