Rumi Koshino is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in San Francisco.

She holds a BFA and MFA from the University of Washington. https://rumikoshino.com/

Danny Paul Grody is a solo musician and founding member of San Francisco based bands Tarentel and The Drift. He is a self taught guitarist, and the melodies at the core of Danny’s songwriting bring to mind his love of West African kora, finger-style guitar and all things minimal, repetitive & hypnotic. https://dannypaulgrody.wordpress.com
