Listen up and mark your calendar. Lara Land of Land Yoga will be hosting a very special event in Harlem on March 18th called “Taste Of India.”
Join us for a glamorous Bollywood night. Ticket includes two hours of Indian inspired cocktails, food, and music at Ginny’s Supper Club, Red Rooster’s downstairs Jazz Lounge. This one of a kind night includes a live Bollywood dance perrformance, exclusive auction items, and a chance to be decorated in henna body art.
This event is to benefit Odanadi, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates children sold into human trafficking. Every year in India, young people are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks. Over the past 20 years Odanadi has carried out over 60 brothel raids and brought more than 140 traffickers to justice.
Sponsored by Land Yoga, Red Rooster, Riazul, Iceberg Vodka, and Harlem Blue.
Please show up and support this important cause and perhaps encourage the sponsors and Lara Land to make this an annual event for an important charitable community cause.
There are all different price ranges in which you can contribute according to your budget and what you can afford. No amount is too little, every dollar helps. See the details below.

The one and only Etta James. It is sad to think we have just only recently lost Etta James (born Jamesetta Hawkins) on January 20, 2012. She was born January 25, 1938 and she died five days before her birthday on which she would have been 74 years old. James was known as an American singer-songwriter. Her style spanned a variety of music genres including blues, jazz, R&B, soul, rock and gospel. Whenever anyone thinks of the jazz classic “At Last” they think of Etta James. Etta’s version as compared to versions by other jazz singers, belonged to her.
James was married to her husband Artis Mills, whom she married in 1969. They had two sons, Donto and Sametto. Both started performing with their mother — Donto played drums at Montreux in 1993, and Sametto played bass guitar circa 2003 with his mom. Etta James battled with Heroin addiction for years and her husband Mr. Mills served a 10-year prison sentence for heroin possession.
From 1989, James received over 30 awards and recognitions from eight different organizations, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences which organizes the Grammys.
Now perhaps more trendy than ever Etta James is a “cult hero” with producers and remixers waiting in line to remix her legendary sound and style. We continue to hear her though samples in rap, hip hop, electronic and pop music of today. Her legacy lives on through blues and jazz singers in clubs worldwide honoring her sound. Here she is singing “At Last” as only she could. And the second video is of a young Etta James singing “Got A Hold On Me.”
