From Daniel Sage

I'm planning on going into some of the more disenfranchised area's of South Africa, and volunteering to teach some music. This will be in conjunction with the Blue Crane Foundation and Musicians without Borders.

Thank you for all the concern about going to a place in a water crisis. However, I will not cancel my trip due to the water shortage in Cape Town, I am solid about this. People need music now more than ever, especially in these turbulent ecological times. Please consider donating to my campaign to help fund the extra expense of water, and to ensure I make it into the poorer villages to teach music.

More Info

This past summer I had a spiritual awakening. I was laying in bed on the summer solstice, watching the energy rise, and feeling a buzzing sensation on my forehead. I realized I had been throwing away my gift of music by working a normal job. I left my house in Bellingham, Wa and hit the road. I did a lot of camping in wilderness this summer, and brought a small travel guitar with me. Now I am planning my first tour of South Africa and plan on helping kids along the way. I have always felt the need to give back, and two years ago I volunteered as a music teacher for a semester for low income kids in New Mexico. Everyday I would wake up and ask them what they wanted to create, and some days it was truly magical. I know the power of music to connect a community and really bridge the divide. Music is our universal language and one of the 3 main forms of art. It is more important and relevant than ever in 2018. So with this I present to you manifesto of the campaign.

We the infinite beings of the universe, all one, are connected through our innate compassion and love. We all belong to the nation within, a nation where citizenship is our birthright. Our rights as citizens of this nation are to experience limitless freedom and vibrant well-being. We identify poverty as a mindset, and know it to be temporary and unnecessary. In gratitude for what we do have, no matter how small, we are wealthy. Through the 3 major art forms, literature, visuals, and music, we transcend our borders and extend love to one another which knows no boundary. We know peace and harmony to be inevitable, and therefore collaborate to ease into these reality’s swiftly and mindfully.
