"River Surrounds" originally came to Ahuja in a dream, in which his mother and grandmother were singing sections of the melody & lyrics. The song was recorded and videoed in one take, "live-looped" using keys, drum pads, and a mic. The recording is released on Ahuja's album "Ubiquity," via Infinity Gritty, a label founded by Ahuja & in partnership with Ropeadope Records.
Since 2004, Blood:Water has partnered with grassroots organizations in sub-Saharan Africa to join them in serving the communities where they work and to improve the health of community members. Through outreach and intimate knowledge of the areas where they work, our partners identify and empower local heroes to champion issues affecting the health of community members.
