Audio slide show of Sistahs of the Drum May 23, 2010 concert

Zenju's Path

Congratulations to Zenju Earthlyn Manuel who just returned from the Buddhist Film Festival Europe held in Amsterdam. Zenju's Path, a documentary film directed by Kathryn Golden, was included in the festival. As the title suggests, this film chronicles..."the life & work of Zenju Earthlyn Manuel one of the first African-American female Soto Zen priest in the United States."

Included in the film is a clip of the concert Sisthas of the Drum produced on May 23, 2010 which apparently was a hit with the audience.

Thank you for the work you are doing in the world Zenju and for spreading our musical offerings to many cultures.

Welcome Amsterdam readers! We appreciate you.
