In the Beginning

It's been 5 months and the Soulophonic Family is building and stretching it's wings each week at the Vortex/Philanthropic Center for the Arts in Downtown LA! Each week a variety of folks stop by to share and express with us. Everything from seasoned, published poets to woman and men getting up on the stage in front of the audience for the very first time. The open mic, which is held in a newly renovated Warehouse space just off Olympic and Santa Fe welcome's any thing related to the mic: Poets, MC's, Musicians, Story Tellers, Comics, Actors and anything you can think of to get up on the mic to say.
