The Twelve Days of Christmas is probably the most misunderstood part of the church year among Christians who are not familiar wtih liturgical church traditions. Contrary to popular belief, the 12 Days of Christmas are not the twelve days before Christmas, but are in fact the twelve days after. Counting from Christmas until the beginning of Epiphany (January 6th; the 12 days count from December 25th until January 5th).
Join us as we explain the twelve days of Christmas using the familiar children's song - The 12 Days of Christmas, from the Christian perspective.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me.

Background: Reggae - Around 1960, in the slums of Kingston Jamaica, where the local bands were playing a musical mixture of American R&B, Caribbean, and pan-African sounds, drummers began to emphasize the afterbeat, the 2nd and 4th beats (4/4 time) in unison with the piano and guitar while the bass played walking quarter notes. The musicians called the sound "Upside-down R&B". It soon became known as "Ska". As time passed Ska slowed the beat, lost it's brass sound and morphed into "Rocksteady", performed with fewer musicians and using more harmony vocals. Around 1968 the influences of Rastafari and Africanism along with political and social unrest in Jamaica gave birth to "Reggae", with a slower, stripped-down, less "Pop-like" sound often with accents added on the 3rd beat. Today the term "Reggae" applies broadly to all the Jamaican born music that contains the original afterbeat rhythm.

Crimson Storm is more than just a band. It is a family, a message, a light shining into the darkness. It is a living, breathing entity...
In a time, a couple of decades ago when musicians were masters of their weapons. Frontmen had serious force and range. Drummers had huge power and charisma. Guitarists were composing and playing the most impressive, virtuoso, monster guitar riffs and leads the world had ever seen. Bassists shined as stars, and loud as thunder in the stormy sky. Not one had a lazy station. It wasn't considered to be an option. Songs had depth, passion and heart. Those days are alive again!!!
Crimson Storm began with a vision when founder lead singer Paul Ames was just 18 years old. Crimson Storm had to survive with him through 20 years of hell to get where it is today, its not only a miracle Crimson Storm is a decade long series of miracles. The first song was written in 1995 in a very dark place. In 2000, Paul formed the first incarnation of Crimson Storm. With huge bands he grew up admiring: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Stryper. The guys that end up on the bus are not always the same guys that started in the garage.
There is a storm coming. Can you feel it? Can you hear the sound of thunder in the distance? The sound of the rain beginning to fall. The rain is as red as blood!

The first drummer to be a superstar, Gene Krupa may not have been the most advanced drummer of the 1930s but he was in some ways the most significant. Prior to Krupa, drum solos were a real rarity and the drums were thought of as a merely supportive instrument. With his good looks and colorful playing He became a matinee idol and changed the image of drummers forever.

Peace Family I Am extremely excited about this program.. In the first half of the program we will have Bro.Jihad and Bro.James of Dynasty Hip-Hop Incorporated Mentoring Program (DHHI) which is designed to utilize hip-hop, and it's industry to educate, motivate and empower youth with the training, and skills to become more productive members of society. The second half we will be joined by Mama Todd Twala the visionary, creator, and director of a Powerful South African Musical With a cast of 32 of South Africa’s brightest and most versatile young performers, singers, drummers and dancers, AFRICA UMOJA – The Spirit of Togetherness, 20 Years of Freedom and Democracy Tour is a joyous celebration of dynamic talent, thrilling energy, great voices and sensual dances that sweep across the bright and vibrant South African traditional landscape. Traveling on the beats of drums, from the dusty streets of Soweto to all the corners of the world’s best and biggest stages, AFRICA UMOJA – which in Zulu means ‘together’ – tells the moving tale of indigenous South African music and dance from the earliest rhythms to the current club sounds of kwaito. Audiences all over the world have embraced the traditional love songs, lullabies and other musical expressions of rural life. They have also cried along in the city streets listening to music reflecting the pain of the migrant laborers and their families. The tale dances through sheebeens and the cultural melting-pot of Sophiatown. The heart is saddened by cold stories of forced removals yet the feet continue to stomp along with the explosions of gumboot dancing. The international audiences will relate to names such as Miriam Makeba (Mama Africa) and the late Dolly Radebe, while a thread of gospel music running through the tale recalls the huge helpings of faith and courage. This saw black South Africans through some of the country’s stormiest historical passages.
