About the Album
Down by the Riverside is a collection of songs and original stories, inspired by Tiana's childhood memories. At that time in some areas of the rural South, down by the riverside was a very special place, a place to meet friends and relatives, have picnics, fish, and wash clothes. Ministers would preach and people would be baptized. Often at the riverside, people would tell stories and gossip. Before the Emancipation, some slaves would sneak away to go to the river.
About the Stories and Songs
The first song is adapted from an African American Spiritual, Ring Them Bells. Often gatherings in the days of slavery began with a song, passing along events of the day. The first story is the lament of a woman during slavery. Emancipation from the African American perspective follows in the story "Juneteenth." After the Spiritual, "Down by the Riverside," is an original story on the Children's Crusade, which occurred during the Civil Rights struggle of the 1960's. Tamale man is the humorous story of a street vendor and Mertice's Gift tells how a child uses his creativity to obtain a wonderful gift. Original songs are "A Village" and "Kwanzaa Time."

Parental guidance is suggested for a word used in the story "The Children's Crusade" (the "N" word).


Healing Celebration

A collection of Spirituals, traditional songs, and original compositions, these songs are tools of healing. Find your hope in this album, the hope of a Promised Land. This work was created in loving memory of Tiana's adoptive father, Richard Marquez. A percentage of all profits are donated to the Teen Mentor program at California State University Northridge.

Healing Celebration

Spirituals are the music created by black slaves, in the tobacco and cotton fields of the American South. Spirituals were often inspired by Old Testament stories, because the slave could identify with the bondage of the Israelites. The music was handed down for more than 300 years.

Regardless of the listener's ethnic or cultural background, this music has the power to call people back to their spiritual roots by soothing, uplifting, and renewing the soul.

Watch Farmer Bill, a video production highlighting the people and organizations working farmer Bill Schmid's land to help support the Ann Arbor, Michigan based "Food Gatherer's Farm Project."
