A native of Harlem in New York City, Jon is presenting a program with a diverse mix of African American music and cultural spices which resonated culturally and from having grown up in New York City in the 60s and 70s. The span of music stylistically is from Jazz Funk, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop and, Jon put together some of the best musicians living in Austria best suited for this musical journey. The events of 2020 around the world inspired global movements in response to the different areas of injustice not just racially in regards to African Americans but for the global call for justice. The problems with racism are global. After the world witnessed the murder of George Floyd, seeds were planted inspiring a solo program called the “Fight for Justice”.
