Lobo Marino – Laney Sullivan and Jameson Price make up the world fusion folk band Lobo Marino. They are also the founders of the Earth Folk Collective and Fonticello Food Forest Project in Richmond, Virginia. Deeply dedicated to environmental and social justice, when traveling they carry in the music a message of humanity’s need for reconnection with the earth. While at home they spend time community organizing and running their homestead and donation based education center The Earth Folk Collective.
The Ascendants – Before they were The Ascendants, Shankari and Kesheva lived parallel lives. They both loved funk, indie rock, dance tunes and hip hop and performed in similar bands. They had spiritual awakenings, which led them to yoga, which led them to living at an ashram. There, they became The Ascendants. Over time, they fused their talents with their spirituality. They drew upon the ashram’s teachings, and Virgo Meets Libra was born.
