lumberob presents Life Coach Me, Baby


I am a performance artist and musician and teacher on sabbatical
with my family in Nosara, Costa Rica for the school year, now a little bit stuck in
Costa Rica but not too upset about that. Down here I have been playing music
with a great group of Tico jammers from the Costa Rican bands Kombo Style and
Perro Mop. The project is called ACID KONGA… an eclectic electro cumbia art
ska band that this lockdown put a stop to, but will ride again… @acidkonga —
otherwise I am excited to some time soon be coming home to Brooklyn to start
teaching again and to start playing out again as LUMBEROB @lumberob
#lumberob and with my band CUSHIONS @cushionsband #cushionsband which
is me and the super lovely drummer baker chef Kristin Worrall


The Nervous presents Born

Formed in 2011, The Nervous dwells in NYC but was born in a
nondescript backwoods bar that serves moonshine and soul. The Nervous is the
last shot of whiskey. It uses the Blues as tobacco and spits out decadent bones
in its withered frame. And then kisses you like an old lover.
The Nervous is Cherrye J. on vocals and percussion and Donte Bonner on guitar
and the 808.


The Panda Project from Shakera Bibi & Nihaarika Negi (aka Some Asian Country)

Shakera and Nihaarika are an international collaboration born in 2017
(one year after China first employed Panda Huggers). Thanks to support from
Arts Council England, Shak and Nihaarika began a conversation in India about
their fathers that ended In Need Of Hugs. They have since been finding more
and more sympatico between the Facts we think we know about Pandas, and the
modern experience of their lives as diasporic, fetishised humans of colour in a
world built on the colonial map.
