HOLLA & HEAL: A Live Benefit Concert Featuring Magnetic North & Taiyo Na and Special Guests

Saturday, April 30, 2022
5 – 7PM

HOLLA & HEAL: A live concert event featuring Magnetic North & Taiyo Na (MNTN) and special guests Ann One, Sham-e-Ali Nayeem, and Treya Lam with proceeds to benefit the community organization CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities. This collective brings live musicianship to the genres of soul, folk, jazz and hip hop from a distinct and politicized Asian American perspective. The event aspires to be a safe gathering for communal healing, especially in context of the pandemic and spikes in anti-Asian violence.

Magnetic North & Taiyo Na consists of Theresa “T-Vu” Vu, Derek Kan, Taiyo Na, and Chucky Kim. They created Home:Word, an album of chart-topping hits in Japan and Korea that Phil Yu of AngryAsianMan called “one of my favorite albums of the year,“ and writer/historian Jeff Chang described as “an album my family plays when we get together.” In 2021, they released “We Belong ‘21” in response to increased nationwide anti-Asian violence. A dedication to the late photographer Corky Lee, the music video was directed by An Rong Xu with ZZ Design.
