“We believe that one of mankind’s higher level of development is through music, art, and culture; and that cultural exchange and sharing will help to cut through ignorance, misunderstanding, and fear, helping to attain a higher consiousness for all.
The practice of art and music as a discipline liberates oneself by developing new skills, discovering different points of view, growing in self-expression, gaining confidence, and creating something to share with others while hopefully developing awareness, insight, understanding, and compassion”
Russel Baba and Jeanne Mercer - founders of Shasta Taiko & ShastaYama
