Audiopharmacy is not just a musical collaboration, it’s a way of being rooted in creativity, a passion for raising the vibrations, respectful cultural-exchange, and a deep love for the healing of our planet. A multi-cultural community of creatives with its current touring members having Native American, Black, Pilipinx, Fijian-Indian, Mexican, Brazilian, European, and Chinese Tibetan Buddhist roots, the eclectic hip-hop ensemble intricately weaves together artistic and cultural inspiration and wisdom from all corners of the Earth. Audiopharmacy’s performance is a global journey that fuses live instrumentation, turntablism, electronics, poetry, prayer and technical lyrics that stir, heal, and reveal.
Internationally, the ensemble has taken the stage at festivals, concert halls, clubs, cultural centers, orphanages, schools, and events in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, France, the UK, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Samoa, New Zealand (Aotearoa), Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Ecuador, Morocco, Oman, Cyprus and Tanzania. Domestically, Audiopharmacy has performed throughout the US.
Audiopharmacy has also toured as music/cultural ambassadors globally, and has successfully fostered cross-cultural understanding by leading community engagements, music and cultural workshops, film showings/Q+ A, and intimate jam sessions. On March 19, 2013, the band received a Mayoral Proclamation from the City & County of San Francisco for artistic excellence, the promotion of cross-cultural understanding abroad, and representing the values of the San Francisco Bay Area.
