Give yourself the pleasure of experiencing the album live.
Meridian Lights is the song writing team of vocalist Bradley Valentin and guitarist Yohimbe Sampson. They have completed an album called “Atlantic”. The album is named after Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue where the duo wrote the album. The album features bass player Jean Shepheard and drummer Drew McClean.
Atlantic defies genre with influences of rock, soul, world and electronic music. A masterful fusion of Bradley’s powerhouse vocals with Yohimbe’s feverish guitar, songs touch on trial, optimism love and sex. Says MTV Iggy, “With their trippy, soulful, rock grooves that bang across cascading, sensual rhythms, it’s hard not to fall in love with Meridian’s do or die style. It’s Afropunk; it’s rudeboy-with-a-heart. It’s the kind of infectious, shape-shifting music that doesn’t fit all, but goes so hard that you simply can’t ignore it.”

[#PHOTOGRAPHY #FESTIVAL] @photovillenyc returns to @BklynBrdgPark
September 18-28, 2014
Brooklyn Bridge Park | Pier 5 | Brooklyn, NY
United Photo Industries, the Brooklyn photography cooperative probably best known for “The Fence” – the 1,000-foot-long photo installation that began in Brooklyn in 2012 and has since had versions in Boston and Atlanta – will set up its third annual Photoville, a pop-up, modular exhibition space, in Brooklyn Bridge Park from Sept. 18 to 28.
The project, at Pier 5 in the park, will include 60 exhibitions, most presented in 20-by-40-foot shipping containers repurposed as mini-galleries, with several outdoor installations as well.
Also planned are more than 25 talks, panels and hands-on workshops, and a series of multimedia presentations and author readings. Publishers of photography books, as well as manufacturers of cameras and equipment, and representatives from art schools and foundations, will show their wares in tents throughout the space. Photoville will cover about 74,000 square feet of the park. And there will be food and a beer garden.
Among the exhibitions are “Testament,” a collection of work from conflicts around the world by the photographer Chris Hondros, who died in Libya in 2011. Other shows include “The Geography of Youth,” an interactive exhibition for which Morrigan McCarthy and Alan Winslow spent three years traveling around the world to photograph and document the ideas of members of the Millennial generation; and “Tunnel People,” featuring Teun Voeten’s photographs of homeless people in New York’s tunnel systems in 1994 and 1995, with updates from 2010, for which he tracked down some of the original subjects. The Fence will be back as well.

About Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China
Black Jamaican Chinese media entrepreneur Paula Williams Madison recalls that her mother Nell said she was separated from her Chinese shopkeeper father Samuel Lowe at age 3 and never saw him again. Born in Jamaica in 1918 to Samuel Lowe (Lowe Ding Chow) and Albertha Campbell, a young Jamaican woman, Nell Vera Williams died in 2006, always sad that she never knew her father’s people. To honor her mother, Paula, a Harlemite, vowed to find her Chinese grandfather’s descendants in China. This is the story of her incredible journey of discovery.
