Tis the season for joy, good tidings and revolution – Soul Revolution that is.

Are you ready for a revolution? Do you want to know what the Soul Revolution is? Well, here is your personal invitation to view the Soul Revolution in full swing as we celebrate the birthday of the lyrical minister Manchildblack on Thursday, December 10th.

That’s right; Libation is receiving a soul makeover, but never fear, everything that has made Libation the hottest underground party in NYC is still in effect. The minister of sound, Ian Friday, and the lyrical minister are just taking the party to the next level.

Concep, resident visual artist, MTV’s Art Battles winner and new millennium modernist, will make blank canvases breathe with life as he creates future masterpieces on the spot. Hosts Afro Mosaic Soul will dazzle the crowd with choreography, floor work and acrobatics that rival the Cirque du Soleil as the minister of sound will guide his disciples through a euphonious caravan that is sure to deliver pure exaltation.

Joining in on the night’s soulful sojourn is special guest DJ Karizma. This Baltimorean prodigy began his DJ career at 13. After teaming up with DJ Spen, Karizma went on to create remixes for Kenny Bobien, SuSu Bobien, Jocelyn Brown, Lenny Kravitz and Mary J. Blige just to name a few. It was during this time that Karizma created the "deepah dubs" and "deepah ones" moniker for his sound. On his own, formed Kohesive Productions and has brought his sound to Japan, United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and many other countries. Many of his productions have been championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Louie Vega, Simon Dunmore, DJ Spinna, Marques Wyatt, Tony Humphries and many other house DJs and producers. After setting 2007 alight with his award winning solo album A Mind of Its Own, Karizma has returned with the highly anticipated sequel: A Mind of Its Own-Version 2.0.

Also, you never know who is going to stop by to Libate and hydrate their spirit – Leon, Sahr Ngaujah, Kindred- The Family Soul – the only way to find out is to stop in yourself.

Libation is the central destination for the Soul Revolution and the future of Global Soul. With its bi-weekly sessions of celebration and audio and visual stimulation, Libation started as a small gathering at the Sapphire Lounge and has grown to set the standard for the underground scene in the Big Apple with its new home at the Sullivan Room. As the lyrical minister and the minister of sound, Manchildblack and Ian Friday have created the ultimate venue to showcase Global Soul, the future of dance music, and the Soul Revolution, the community and culture that will support the Global Soul Movement into the next decade of the new millennium. Libation not only delivers drenched t-shirts, it also provides salvation for the spirit.
