We gave a concert for inmates at San Quentin....the mantras brought over 200 men together by the end of the concert, to be in peace and sing with one another...and to suddenly watch a spontaneous dance session happen while we played some reggae was just overwhelming. A tiny spark of pure joy filled our collective consciousness, filled the chapel, filled our hearts - and yes, for that one moment, we were all free. Just over the courtyard from where we played was the 'house of the damned' - 700 people on death row. I think they might even have been able to hear us play...I hoped so.
"The men continue to talk about the beautiful concert you, Miten, Manose, Joby and Spencer gave for them. Please know that you touched many hearts that night. Men have said:
'I don't know where I went that night. I was taken out of my body and out of here.'
'Something changed inside of me.'
'I have never, ever heard music like that.'
That was the best concert I’ve ever been to.'"
