      > The Strong Medicine Concert is an annual benefit for Native American
      Health Center. Proceeds from this year's concert will go towards the
      capital campaign to build the new Seven Directions Health Care Facility
      Project currently under development. The new construction project includes
      a 26,000 sq ft health care facility with 38 units of family affordable
      housing built above. The housing portion of the project is developed and
      financed separately by the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation, a
      leading nonprofit housing developer in the East Bay. The project is slated
      to break ground Spring 2005.

      > One of the most prominent figures in late 20th century blues,
      singer/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal (www.tajblues.com) played an enormous
      role in revitalizing and preserving traditional acoustic blues. Not content
      to stay within that realm, Mahal soon broadened his approach, taking an
      interest in a multitude of folk and roots music from around the world -
      reggae and other Caribbean folk, jazz, gospel, R&B, zydeco, various West
      African styles, Latin, even Hawaiian. The African-derived heritage of most
      of those forms allowed Mahal to explore his own ethnicity from a global
      perspective and to present the blues as part of a wider musical context.
