Musical artist Maya Azucena believes that music is a tool for healing and activism. This Brooklyn-based soul-singer has toured the world and shared the stage with some of the most well-known musical artists from the worlds of R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Rock. She is so eclectic that she shared in a 2008 Grammy Award for a Reggae collaboration with Stephan Marley. In the spring of 2008, Maya and her band did a 5-week U.S. State Department-sponsored tour of Myanmar (Burma), China, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka, as part of The Rhythm Road/American Music Abroad program. They did concerts as well as music workshops in an effort to create cultural exchange.
