2013 Fellow Dahlak Brathwait has launched a GoFundMe campaign along with producer Amadeu Gocalves to help fund the development of an educational music performance for young people in the Sacramento area. “Adapting History” is an oral telling of American music through history and American history through music. Dahlak uses spoken word poetry and hip-hop sampling techniques to narrate and re-imagine the complex history of the United States.
The project was created in collaboration with the Mondavi Center at UC Davis, and received support from the U.S. State Department and Found Sound Nation.
