The Feels (Feel Good Revolution), curated by Brittany Lynch and Toki Wright, is a night of intentional happiness featuring singers, poets, comedians and musicians that perform artistic pieces promoting Happiness, Healing and Triumph. The Feel Good Revolution provides a space for art, entertainment and healing to become synonomous. Throughout the night, emerging artists from the Twin Cities will perform 5 to 7 minute pieces of original art inspired by the theme and share their personal ways of finding happiness. A live jazz ensemble will be available to perform and accompany the artists. The event will be videotaped and recorded for features on Jazz88 KBEM.
Toki Wright is a Twin Cities based emcee, poet and community organizer. Raised in a Buddhist household, immersing himself in Black history, world culture, and community work, Toki Wright's awareness of the diverse world we live in is translated through his content driven music. He has taken paths that run the gamut from a non-profit youth organization in North Minneapolis to work with war-affected children in Northern Uganda. As an artist, Wright's travels have taken him throughout the United States and Canada as support and hypeman for Brother Ali. Other performance credits include Soundset, Coachella, CMJ, Bumbershoot , Paid Dues, Scribble Jam, and SXSW
