Over the years numerous kids have called Tsegyalgar East their home -- sons and daughters of gekos, practitioners and secretaries in the yellow schoolhouse. Ayana’s (above right) parents acted jointly as secretary and geko from 2000-2003. Ayana entertained us all for years during retreats with her bold violin performances and robust singing.
Today she’s a talented teen still singing. She has sung solo for over 200 people, studied with Sweet Honey and the Rock's Evelyn Harris and has attended the IMA (Institute for the Musical Arts) summer programs that empower the voices of girls in rock music.
Here she is on one of her you tube video’s singing Roar by Katy Perry. Click here to read the lyrics.
Join us for our amazing performances with guest artists including Evelyn Harris,
June Millington, Harvey Kaiser on Friday, July 11, 2014 at the Mohowk Regional School.
