Announcing the release of a live concert CD
by Eddy Zheng, Martin Dosh, and Paul Dosh:
An Evening of Spoken Word, Music, and Inspiration with Eddy Zheng
In 2010, Paul and Martin Dosh hosted activist Eddy Zheng’s first visit to Minnesota. The three of them performed at Macalester College, introducing the Twin Cities community to the extraordinary story of Eddy’s two decades in prison and his ongoing fight against deportation to China.While still in prison, Eddy began fundraising to support neighborhood activists in the shantytowns of Peru. Eddy continues this activism today by selling the CD/book as a fundraiser for the non-profit Building Dignity. Building Dignity promotes education, leadership, and development among Peru’s poorest neighborhoods. Make a donation (in any amount) and you’ll receive a copy.
The CD includes seven spoken word poems, four original Dosh tunes, Eddy’s presentation, and Q&A highlights. The tracks range from the sobering “Autobiography @33″ to the hilarious “Dating Etiquette.” The accompanying chapbook includes text of the poems and information on Eddy Zheng and his struggle. Tracks include:
