Power Struggle -
Mario de Mira aka Nomi of the hip-hop group Power Struggle has spent many years touring with groups like Atmosphere, Brother Ali, De La Soul, and DJ Shadow. He has shared the stage with Souls of Mischief and Snoop Dogg and has received critical acclaim for his albums “Arson at the Petting Factory” and “Remittances”. He has performances throughout the U.S., Italy and the Philippines.
Before working at the FCC, Mario was a basic laborer, who worked in various fields from light manufacturing, manual labor and also the service industry. His experience as a worker has helped him relate to the issues that affect so many disenfranchised workers in the community. Recently, he helped organize Migrante Northern California, a Filipino group fighting for workers and immigrant rights, and actively workers with the Progressive Worker’s Alliance.
Charito Soriano (soulful-singer), born and raised in the Bay Area, joined forces with Rowena ‘FunkCH3N’ Conlu (guitarist) circa 2010. Since then, they have been creating and evolving into the acoustic-electronic duo that you hear today.
Their music combines natural organic sounds of the classical guitar, a sultry voice, and the musical technologies of the 21stcentury; bringing you a unique blend of frequencies. With these vibrations, they have worked very hard in their craft to share a musical experience that reflects ideas of conscious freedom, inspiration, courage, strength, light, and LOVE.
