Hip-Hop Musical With An Environmental Twist To Take The Stage At 2011 Bioneers Conference
Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature To Be Performed At Popular Environmental Event
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (October 13, 2011)—Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature, a hip-hop musical story about a little girl named Pacha who saves the environment with the help of the world’s plants and animals, will take to the stage this Sunday, October 16, in a groundbreaking Rights of Nature Youth Workshop at the Youth Unity Stage at The Marin Center in San Rafael, Calif., from 2:45 p.m.-3:30 p.m. The live storytelling and musical youth workshop event is part of the Bioneers 2011 environmental conference and will be led by Pacha’s Pajamas creators BALANCE Edutainment as well as Global Exchange and the Rights of Mother Earth Signature Campaign. For more information, please visit www.bioneers.org.
Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature is both a children’s book (www.amazon.com and www.pachaspajamas.com) and an upcoming hip-hop musical designed to bring music and storytelling together to share important messages about the environment and inspire positive action. The hip-hop album will feature well-known, soon-to-be-announced musical artists as well as Bay area and national youth.
“We believe that catalyzing change can happen in a fun way through socially-conscious music, stories about interdependence and by amplifying the voices of children,” said Aaron Ableman, musician, educator and co-founder of BALANCE Edutainment, the creator of Pacha’s Pajamas.
“Nature’s Rights is an issue that Pacha’s Pajamas aims to popularize through a message of unity across species, honoring the planet upon which humanity depends. We are thrilled to share Pacha’s story with the Bioneers conference and all the youth movements around the world!”
In addition to the Bioneers performance, the BALANCE Edutainment team will be making live appearances to perform the story and songs from Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature throughout the United States this fall and through 2012.
