Music and art brewing at Freshies
Music and art are getting into the mix at Freshies Coffee Co. DJ Irie and Mama Sa (Ari Rosen and Sara Zacks) will be spinning for the reggae slam on April 1 from 2 to 6 pm.
“It's a family friendly event,” said Rosen.
Everyone is welcome to come out and feel free to dance to the chilled out tunes and take in the new art work by Nicole Hobbs whose bold coloured paintings will be on display until the end of May.
“Nature has a way of reminding me of where I am in the present moment,” said Hobbs. “It allows me to appreciate the dynamic movement and change in everything around me. The excitement I have for the wilderness has drawn me to paint nature through my senses to impart that feeling.” Hailing from Nelson, Hobbs is a mother of two and practices Reiki.
Mama Sa, Kootenay promoter and selectah, has had her hand in the West Coast reggae music scene since the late 90’s. Between radio shows, festival production, and bringing international artists to Nelson, her passion for the roots and culture music has earned her local notoriety. Original dancehall anthems to new roots classics reggae music keep you bubbling.
If the rhythm of the music continues to move you, DJ Irie and MamaSa will be playing at the Royal later the same evening.
