WRFB: Talking Restoration Rocks w/ Lisa Yancey and Tamar-kali

Chopping it up with Tamar-kali and Restoration's Lisa Yancey.

More on Restoration Rocks 2010!

Last night, I had some good conversation with Lisa Yancey, the interim executive director of arts & culture programming for Restoration Plaza, along with the event’s musical curator, Tamar-kali.  Learned a couple of things: First, the Bed-Stuy Restoration Corporation is the first and oldest community development corporation in the country.

Second, October 8 is Tamar-kali’s birthday, so this event is really a big throwdown with all the artists she’d want to see.    So, definitely come through the Do-or-Die and wish her a happy born-day!

Here’s the conversation as it took place:
