Matre & Lesley Kernochan Living Room Concert
Acoustic Hip Hop with my dear bestie whom I've known since birth. We grew up on the same block, walked to school together, and both became musicians! And now we are collaborating, bringing together my folk flare, and his hiphop soul. We are having a blast creating together, and I hope you'll come out and see this special show. Matre is a deeply spiritual wordsmith, and I'm a big hearted goofball so the combo is clearly a spirit-hearted wordball goofsmith.
Sister Shivani Meditation Event
I will be singing the song that came to me called "The Universe", joined by hiphop artist Matre, for this free meditation event with Sister Shivani.
Here is the Brahma Kumaris event description:
Although humanity stands at the moment of unprecedented division, we are also on the precipice of increasing unity, harmony, peace and integrity. Major global changes begin with increased individual awareness and personal accountability.
We invite you to join in a thought- provoking conversation with a great wisdom keeper of our time Sister Shivani to hear the ways in which we may positively influence humanity through our inner evolution.

Please join us for a lovely evening of live music and art featuring my Americana songs, the hip hop talents of Matre, and charocal art by Dean Liao. The doors open at 7pm, show is at 8pm. We will provide some snacks and drinks, and feel free to bring a bottle of whatever you like to drink.

Thank you! ~Lesley

Flash Mob for Transgender Day of Remembrance
This is an annual flash mob that I put together for Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year we will do two consecutive flash mobs, and like last year, we will be dancing to a song I wrote called Esprit Yourself. The flash mobs will be in Washington Square Park 1pm, and in Bryant Park at 2pm. Come share your booty with us on behalf of a very important cause! It is not ok that people are being murdered for being trans. We must bring love and sanity to our community! More details of this event are on our facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1859180054315742/
Satsong: an evening of meditation and music
A satsang is a sacred gathering in honor of Truth & Being. This is a satSONG in which we weave together meditation and music in a gathering of community. All are welcome.
A lightly guided meditation will be given by Taz Tagore of The Reciprocity Foundation to begin the evening. The music will be offered by Lesley Kernochan, and then Sam Hammerman. We will close the evening with a music jam and prayer.
Sam Hammerman is a singer/songwriter whose music lives in the pop world, filled with beautiful melodies and catchy guitar hooks but with a depth and soul rare in that field. The lyrics are rich, the voice is smooth as a waterfall, and the chords are imaginative. http://samhammerman.bandcamp.com/
Lesley Kernochan is soon to release a new album of songs that come from her unexpected love affair with country music while living in NYC. Her deepening love for meditation blended with the country influence creates a unique twang and tenderness. www.lesleykernochan.com
Location: Last Frontier NYC www.last-frontier.nyc
Donation $5-10 Reciprocity youth free. Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1420140351626419/
We hope to see you there!
