Fair Tomatoes a documentary project produced in association with Taranta. It’s a film that focuses on the plight of farm workers in Immokalee, Florida. They have faced abuses such as stagnant wages, physical mistreatment, along with a host of other injustices.

About All Kicker:
All Kicker is a publicly serving magazine style blog. Our mission is to report on content in the areas of arts, activism, and technology. We focus less on breaking news and more on the in depth stories, the unseen issues, the under reported concerns...and we do this with written articles, short form videos, documentaries and more. We endeavor to operate with high integrity and high quality to better inform the public and in doing so affect social change no matter the size.
About Taranta: Taranta is a 30 seat restaurant located Boston’s historic North End. Its chef and owner Jose Duarte opened this restaurant, strictly, as a southern Italian dining experience. Today, however, Taranta has evolved and now serves as a unique marriage of Italian technique with Peruvian ingredients.
Taranta also takes special interest in the social responsibility of food service proprietors.
With this in mind, Taranta has put a lot of focus in educating the public on issues of environmental impact of food production, the cost of labor in the fields where ingredients are produced and more.

"DeeAnn, you are such a great teacher. What a beautiful gift to expose others to the majestic magic of the skins/drums. Once I got into the drumming groove, I felt the peeling back of the layers, the release, the opening up, the total surrender, and I really felt I was amongst friends." E. LeivaWith a background in music and massage therapy, DeeAnn utilizes specific rhythms and exercises in drum circles in a variety of settings (nursing homes, schools, summer camps, corporations, etc) to bring people together in a fun and connected way through rhythm.
Please join us if you are brand new to drumming or have plenty of experience. Bring your djembe drum if you have one and your rattles. DeeAnn also has plenty of drums to share.
