The seventh installment of AAMS will feature improvisational and experimental music that is not very common to the Asian American community.

Ray of Mojo of My Heart - Musetta (vocals, harmonium), Shayna Dunkelman (percussion), The Norman Conquest (electronics)
Ray of Mojo of My Heart's music is a "bricolage of world, avant-garde, psychedelic, and lowercase packaged in a powerhouse trio of percussion, vocals/harmonium, and electronics." (The Daily Palindrome) TNC weaves a rich bed of sonic splendour upon which the dynamic duo, Musetta and Shayna, display both their virtuosity and their innate sensitivity. Their sound comes out of a collective force of musical performance that began a year ago and continued with TNC's Requiem for the American Empire, which premiered at the 2006 APAture Festival.
