Since 2007, Chhoti has performed, collaborated and taught in Puerto Rico, China, US, Cuba, Spain, Qatar, U.A.E., Ghana, Sweden, Canada, Peru, Mexico and multiple Indigenous nations. Their music deals with decolonial living, red medicine, queerness, migrant empowerment, love and the reconstruction of the womyn temple.
Mother & The Boards
Mother & the Boards is a fierce and unique blend musical genres with a message to incite and inspire you. Defined by the vocal gymnastics and songwriting prowess of front woman Kazoo Studios, their sound is reminiscent of hip hop artists like Erykah Badu and Brother Ali, from the lips of a New York State folk singer. Imagine the musical birth child of Bob Dylan, M.I.A., Nina Simone, and Fugazi belting revolutionary anthems for a contemporary audience. Mother & the Boards also features regular guests on percussion, bass, horns and strings. Based in Oakland, CA, you can find them performing in venues across the Bay Area.
Telepathic Children is a gay rave band from the basement floor to the main stage, they summon the infinite night.
